Alison Jacques Gallery is delighted to present Sheila Hicks's first solo exhibition in the UK. The artist describes her work as 'unbiased weaves', a phrase which not only reflects her fascination for language and poetry but her interest in classifications. Crucial components of Hicks's language include colour with embedded texture, and structure that employs unexpected materials such as recycled and reappointed objects from hospitals, rubber bands and porcupine quills. She fuses ancient textile traditions with the Bauhaus principles of colour, form and scale.
