David Hickey

David Hickey is best known for his metal work depicting the landscape of the Kawarthas. His manipulation of rigid hardened metal into a fluid form is reminiscent of how nature transforms the harshest of landscapes. His paintings reflect an impressionistic framework that allow the viewer to enter into the inner dialogue of the art and help complete the overall presentation. In both his paintings and metal work, David embellishes his art with colour and textures leaving a hand forged feel to the final work.

“Ideas, imagination, the natural world, mediums in transformation, organic representation within a contemporary impressionist framework, these are the components that awaken my inner creativity.” — David Hickey
