Josephine Hicks

Hicks’ playful work is an exploration in documenting space, colour and textures. From large-scale murals, to experimental screen print.

The bases for these prints came from a collection of hand-tinted postcards. Botanical scenes from exotic places featuring palm trees and waterfalls, carefully hand coloured in the mid - late 19th century creating an interesting balance between factual and the imagined.
Experimenting with a similar lurid colour palette, Hicks’ paints directly onto the screen. This process allows very little control and much is left up to chance.
