Sheila Hicks (American, born 1934) has been working supple and pliable materials for over sixty years. Known for pushing perceptions of art beyond traditional associations, the artist uses fiber to create sculptures and objects that give material form to color. Seize, Weave Space engages Hicks's myriad techniques of expanding her manual vocabulary, as visible in the installation that fills and transforms the Lower Level Gallery into a landscape of little-known discoveries. Hicks also commandeers innovative, industrially perfected fibers in her sculpture. Unique for their heightened colors of pure pigments that are resistant to both sun and humidity, synthetic fibers enable new creative exploits. This has greatly expanded the range of Hicks's endeavors and also allows the artist to extend her installations outdoors. Seize, Weave Space continues in the Nasher Garden.
