Logan Hicks “THIN VEILS AND HEAVY ANCHORS” ~ Opens March 8th

2:15 PM PST on March 5, 2013


THIN VEILS AND HEAVY ANCHORS at LACE GALLERY. Opens March 8th, closes March 10th.

“I used to get the crap beat out of me daily. Every day as I got off the school bus, I was beat to the point where I just wish I could disappear. Become invisible. I was a 6ft tall, skinny, suicidal, insecure redhead who didn't have the confidence to stand up for myself. Those years sucked. I stood out like a sore thumb. It wasn't until I left for college that I found my 'home.' I arrived in the city of Baltimore for college and for the first time since elementary school, nobody noticed me. Nobody called me names. Nobody tried to beat me up. I had finally succeeded in pulling a thin veil over the awkwardness that had followed me for most of my life. I was normal. I had become part of the fabric of my environment. It was the most amazing feeling. Ever since then, I have been in love with the city. The potential it represents. The freedom. I feel more attached to the city that I live in than the people that live within it. The city has become my anchor." -- Logan Hicks
