ABOUT JACK

 

Jack Hickey was born in 1988 in the small town of Cobh, located along the southern coast of Ireland. Jack's love for art began during his secondary level education at Coláiste Muire. In 2006 he was accepted at Crawford College of Art & Design. He graduated in the 2010-2011 academic year and has garnered much critical acclaim in the years that have followed. He is currently continuing his art practice, pursuing a career as a professional artist and has recently moved into his first studio.

 

His work attempts to illuminate the emptiness at the centre of human relationships, the inherent lack of meaningful interaction between different people, different sexes and different realities. The open space in the work represents the distance between individuals, the unsaid and the unrequited. It is an example of the void inherent in a modern, socially fractured world, where true human contact has become illusive, almost impossible. They strive to show the hole at the centre, the empty room within, the point where unease begins.
