Ro2 Art Gallery presents Candace Hicks: "Paper Cuts" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present "Paper Cuts," a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Candace Hicks. Hicks creates paper craft compositions that focus on subverting the traditional themes typically found in crime book cover illustrations.
In "Paper Cuts," Hicks utilizes her time spent reading fiction and the background in book art to mirror inequalities that lie in the literature we choose to consume. She strives to match the unsentimental manner in which fictional victims are treated, specifically relating to the way women in fiction are often sexualized unto death.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 16.
