Sam Hickson: Mechanical Art

From 21 July to 11 August, Auckland-based artist Sam Hickson presents an insight into the value of mechanical objects that many of us take for granted. Come and meet Sam at Feilding Art Centre between 10am and 4pm on July 21!

Mechanical objects play a huge role in our daily lives. Sometimes we are unaware of how much we rely on them until they break down.

No matter where you live, everybody relies on something mechanical on a daily basis. In this latest series of paintings, Sam applies the principals of portraiture to mechanical subjects, lending a sense of energy and emotion to objects many of us take for granted. 

Sam is visiting from Auckland but you can come and meet him here at Feilding Art Centre between 10am and 4pm on July 21!
