Victoria Fuller, joins the Phantom Gallery Chicago, in the landscape of Miami during the Art Basel.  She is being represented with the artwork of Alan Emerson Hicks members of 2D Sculpture Group of Chicago.



Alan Emerson Hicks' artwork is influenced by our society and magic.  His sculptures use plastic discarded objects and American detritus to create objects that comment on what our society finds important.  He is drawn to plastic material because of its weight and variety of color.  Plastic bottle caps and rings become colorful towers that reflect architecture, engineered structures and religious relics.






He uses plastic clothes hangers to create figures and large geometric shapes.  Sometimes he use heat manipulation to alter the shapes of the plastic objects.  Hicks wants to impart in the viewer a sense of magic and wonder about the world around them.  The use of commonplace objects creates that sense.  
"I want the audience to view the plastic materials of their everyday lives anew." Alan Emerson Hicks
