by Leah Hicks
March 15th – April 9th
Studio22 Fine Art is pleased to introduce new abstract paintings by artist, Leah Hicks.
Hicks’ ethereal abstract canvases trigger a parasympathetic response where breathing slows, spirits lift, and a sense of calm envelops the viewer. Each piece is beautifully and purposely constructed with deliberate consideration placed on eye movement, color balance, and textural contrast. Her pieces have universal appeal.
This latest body of work not only celebrates the artist’s self-remodel following a life changing accident, but also speaks to her profound longing for a world where equality is universal, peace begets power and acceptance is society’s unifying force.
Preview and presale for this exhibit will take place Tuesday, March 15th and Wednesday, March 16th.
Exhibit opens to the general public for purchase on Thursday, March 17th.
Opening Reception will take place on Wednesday, March 16th from 4 – 6pm, artist will be in attendance. No food and drink will be served and masks are required.
We invite all who can to please come out to our Opening Reception and show our new, out-of-town artist, Leah Hicks, a big, warm Kingston welcome!
“My artwork is pleasing to the eye and appeals to a wide array of people. I strive to create art that is versatile and timeless. Art is my salvation and constant partner; intense and full of passion.” – Leah Hicks
Leah Hicks, born in 1978, is an abstract, acrylic and multimedia artist from Smiths Falls, Ontario. In 2005, a catastrophic car accident turned her passion for art into her salvation. Traumatic brain injuries left her suffering with double vision, an inability to speak clearly and functional limb weakness. She never gave up on her passion for art and learned to paint with her left hand instead of previously dominant right hand. Leah Hicks is represented by galleries in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. Her work has been collected by the Federal Government of Canada as well as held in many private collections.
