In The Shadows Petrina Hicks continues to seduce and subvert, combining heightened technical skill and elegant compositions with an unsettling ambiguity. She draws attention to habitual ways of thinking and depicting in our culture, past and present. Within her studio, she assembles sculptural forms with a meticulous eye for detail - the shape of a vase, the fall of fabric, the pinkness of a shell. Her subjects, whether people or objects, are loaded with symbolism and exist within a strangely placeless reality, making them hard to pin down.
