Week 11- Artist Interview: Wesley Hicks

This week I interviewed Wesley Hicks. In his gallery, there were many strange pieces. Othewise known as “abstract.” When I looked at this piece in particular, the first thing that came to mind were little prizes that could be on in the little machines where you put a quarter into a slot and you twist a knob in order for it to come rolling down the chute.Again, art is bringing about fond memories of my childhood that I wish to cherish. It still amazes me that art works in this way. Now, many of these objects, as seen in the picture, have different shapes and some of them even resemble objects seen in our daily lives. For example, one could say that the second to last object on the bottom right corner looks like a baseball bat. The ambiguity leaves this piece open for discussion and conversation which is nice.
