Artist Ed Hicks, who lives in Glastonbury CT, focuses on the landscape’s color and its variations with light. He searches New England for that special place, a scene that strikes him. He then goes about capturing the essence of that place in a painting.
Noted for creating colors and textures that are uniquely bright and alive, his approach to oil is lighter and more colorful than many traditional paintings. Hicks feels that what is left out is as important as what is put in the painting. He likes to give a painting just enough information to evoke a sense of place, but wants the viewer to fill in the specifics. For this reason, the greatest measure of his success is the positive responses to his work.
His studies at Vesper George School of Art in Boston gave Hicks a solid academic foundation, and he is strongly influenced by Wyeth and the early Impressionists. His work is collected in private homes and in corporations around the world.
