Bruno Motel, 2010. 16” x 20”, Edition of 20 C-Type print

'Bruno Motel' invites the eye with its composition and with its clear blue sky it works well as a piece of decorative wall art in a bright room.

This is certainly an image of two halves, with the low angle perspective of the road and the two contrasting tones of the yellow and black asphalt turning it almost into a Mark Rothko painting. The second half then brings us firmly back into the real world with a classic image of the American West, with what was once the frontier now an motel and petrol station isolated from society with a certain timelessness.

 

About the Artist:

After studying fine art for a couple of years, Samuel Hicks went on to study photography at Berkshire School of Art for a further two years. Following his graduation, he began assisting photographers in London, mainly in advertising, before going on to assist one photographer for the next six years.

Since being out on his own as a photographer, Hicks has been fortunate enough to travel to places such as Argentina, the States, the Czech Republic, and many Caribbean Islands, working for clients such as O2, Land Rover, Lucozade, P&O, Smirnoff Ice, The Times, The Independent, Art World, ING, Lynx and Metropolitan Police. In the last few years, his personal projects have incorporated working on location in Sweden, Norway, and Ireland where he shot the New York State Circus.

The photograph of the Kendo Fighter smoking was a winner in the Lifestyle & Portraiture category of the Association of Photography Awards in 2004. Samuel’s work has featured in Creative Review’s annual photography showcases of the last few years. As well as exhibiting work at the London Photographic Awards, he was also selected for the Foto8 Summer Show in 2009 and had his first solo show at Crane Kalman Brighton in 2009.
