Sid Dickens’s Fall 2011 “Reflections” collection indeed gives us pause to reflect. Look to the past, look within, and especially look forward to a season of change. Perhaps, turn over a new leaf?
These stunning new images tell a story of our collective journey through time. Luxurious and refined; this collection is a meditation on the beauty of the pure, sensual pleasures of life. Like a bittersweet love song, these images have the power to invoke memories in rich detail.
Regal blues and precious silver mark the collection. Sid’s use of images on a mirror-like silver finish is an exciting new flash of brilliance in his artistic oeuvre. The silver hues recall the elegant sparkle of a well-worn mirror. Collectors will need to keep in mind that due to the nature of the silvering process, each of these new pieces will have its own unique finish. Consistent with all Sid Dickens Memory Blocks, they are especially one-of-a-kind.
Like a mirror; a work of art contains limitless questions and answers. These bold new works embrace the spirit of exploration. They reflect our pleasures, pains, and promises of hope for the future. What remains constant is our unbreakable connection to one another, no matter where the wind may take us next.
