Hicks’s hand-formed terracotta pieces are coated with a copper-infused luster that fuses to his glazes and results in a thin, undulating, metallic surface. He favors such finishes because they allow his sculptures’ forms and surface color to be the main focus rather than their place in history or chemistry.

Hicks clusters his individual clay pieces to form compositions that are either suspended from the ceiling with natural fiber twine or supported by free-standing or wall-mounted metal armatures. A single object is very complex. The complexity of each component parallels the compositions of  paintings, in which individual elements cohere to demonstrate the artist’s virtuosity.

Agriculture isn’t something most of the people would imagine they could get inspiration to create an art piece. David says: “I am still digging in the dirt to understand my attraction to the agricultural. Shapes and themes I reference can be found in the fields surrounding my home.” In the agricultural world there are cycles that feel like allegorical references to human struggle, a struggle that starts with fertilization, moves through growth and finally ends in decay.
