Thomas Hicks

Thomas Hicks has just started to keep a blog about the production of his new AnimateTV 2009 commission Unicycle Film, including shots of the work in progress. The film is due to be completed in summer 2009.

In the meantime, Thomas Hicks has a solo exhibition at the Michael West Gallery, Quay Arts, Isle of Wight, opening on 22 November entitled Dark City, Lonely Circus. The exhibition focuses on Thomas' working process and includes pre-production drawings for the Unicycle Film project, as well as handmade zoetropes, animation frames, sketchbooks, and a recreation of Hicks' own printing desk. The exhibition runs until 10 January.

You can also check out Thomas' previous work here on Vimeo.

  1. if this is what i just saw on channel 4 it was amazing! it was disgusting but beautiful, made me feel safe when I got sucked in but scared me. It had an evil feel to it but seemed as if it was right.. Perfect conflict of art in my eyes. I wanted it to stop but couln't look away. Alot of emotion and feeling expressed and supressed with this, nice one! The rain made it come alive too! any more let me know; jaybfast@hotmail.co.uk

  2. Thanks Jay.
    The film and extended interview with Thomas Hicks will be up on animateprojects.org from the end of December.
