future exhibition | Rae Hicks: Anomaly | 11 February - 14 March 2021
Rae Hicks: Anomaly BBNR gallery is delighted to announce its launch exhibition, Anomaly, an installation of new paintings and sculptures by Rae Hicks.

The exhibition takes the skewed perspectives of lockdown, both personal and societal, as its starting point.

The phenomenon of obscure conspiracy theories maturing into mainstream delusions - and the increasing refusal to recognize hitherto conventional systems - is explored in
works which suggest that the sophistication of our immediate and everyday surroundings can render them somehow unreal, and ripe for myth and ignorance.

The exhibition constitutes fragments of a narrative, informed partly by the Essex locality where the artist has spent the time of lockdown.

Rae Hicks completed his MA in Painting at Royal College of Art, and his BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College London.
He has exhibited widely, and was the youngest prize winner in John Moores Painting Prize 2014. Solo shows include Fast Dream (CANAL London), Start Art Fair (Saatchi Gallery), Three Works (Three Works Weymouth).

Recent projects include Night Swim (Good Naked NY), Material Images (Marvin Gardens NY), All or Nothing (Lungley Gallery London), There’s Something about Painting (Tatjana Pieters Ghent).
