Delirious Affirmations is a retrospective exhibit covering a photographic career that spans the last 35 years. Hickson displays, in 16×20 silver gelatin prints, his fascination with his world and the beauty he finds in ordinary circumstances: the wind moving in the trees, an unused machine, the minutia of a lifetime gathered in a printer’s type drawer, tree bark, and weeds on the ground. He also collects the markers of a disappearing world as he works to preserve a communal memory. The images are displayed with poetry authored by the artist, including a poem exploring the Great Frappe Theory of Language.
