Political Aspirations

Cheryl Hicks' "Political Aspirations" plays on one of American history’s most scandalous rumored affairs: between Marilyn Monroe and President John F. Kennedy, who actually stayed here, at The Blackstone hotel in Chicago, in 1962.

Longview, Washington-based Hicks' piece hangs in the hotel's 1600 Club. Art curation by NINE dot ARTS.

Meet the Creator

Much of my art borrows from the theory of pointillism and the digital effects of photographic half-toning. And it is very much a product of pop culture. I am also a writer and love to play around with text in my images. I am working on an ongoing series titled, “I Just Don’t Read Like I Used To,” in which I cut up books and use the text to make a statement about how technology has impacted our relationship with books.

My text strip collages are pure experimentation. I love starting something new, generating a set of rules, breaking the rules, and moving beyond what I originally expected would happen.”
