Derek Hickman's textual abstractions are acrylics on canvas that are all form, colour and narrative. Hickman addresses the imbalance between memory and myth by literally blowing bits of personal narrative out of proportion and onto the canvas, which takes the private public. Meaning is obscured from the viewer through the process of abstraction. Also after the jump is an example of work from another series by Hickman where children's toys are referenced.
