Artist bio

Jason Hicks first exhibited with Parnell Gallery in 1998. He was born in Wanganui in 1973, and graduated with a degree in design and photography from Victoria University in 1997. It is for his paintings that he has become known and he has exhibited widely.

Jason’s work captures the affinity we as New Zealanders have with the birds and the land. His paintings evoke nostalgia for a more innocent past whilst challenging the viewer to contemplate what the future may hold. His work explores identity, time and place, using our native birds as a vehicle to convey these ideas. His 2015 show, ‘Numbers’, offered a deepening exploration of these themes, with the birds becoming increasingly defined in character.
