Tomorrow marks the opening of a new group show featuring works from Logan Hicks, Anthony Lister and Michael Kalish. Logan Hicks brings his meticulously stenciled, expressive landscapes to the show while Anthony Lister’s painterly spray can antics deliver more defaced heroes and Michael Kalish makes mangled license plates bloom into portraits. The video above features Logan Hicks speaking on the new show, talking about historical photographs and feeling alone in the busiest place in the world.

Stenciling started as a substitution for screenprinting, but quickly morphed into Logan’s medium of choice. A perfect union was conceived by spraypainting stencils of his subjects: the dirty and gritty nature of the spraypaint thoroughly depicted the decay of the city while the muted shine of metallic paint mirrored the faint glimmer of hope and life within it. It is this symbiotic relationship with the city that fuels his work.

With his photorealistic style, Logan draws a parallel between the cold, harsh city and a warm, vibrant organism. It is alive; a breathing creature where the ebb and flow of people washing over its sidewalks act as cells circulating through its veins. Buildings block passageways, walls block views, doors hide openings. The outside world is effectively shut out while the city creates its own reality. Confined spaces on subways, honeycomb living structures; it is a labyrinth of working systems limited only by its border, its ‘skin’. Logan uses his art to explore the microcosm in which he is a cell, just part of a whole. The nuances of city life that epitomize the urban existence are what he dwells upon.
