Ro2 Art is proud to present Paper Cuts, a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Candace Hicks. The show will run from February 16 - March 16, 2019. The opening reception will be held Saturday, February 16, from 7-10 p.m.
Candace Hicks creates paper craft compositions that focus on subverting the traditional themes typically found in crime book cover illustrations. In Paper Cuts, Hicks utilizes her time spent reading fiction and the background in book art to mirror inequalities that lie in the literature we choose to consume. She strives to match the unsentimental manner in which fictional victims are treated, specifically relating to the way women in fiction are often sexualized unto death.
