Paintings by Cheryl Hicks seen at The Monticello Hotel, Longview, WA, Longview - Hanging Out at the Triangle Tavern

Hanging Out at the Triangle Tavern

This painting is part of my new Local Color series for the Monticello Hotel. It features Marilyn at the iconic Triangle Tavern, a place that can get a little rough around the edges as night comes on. It measures 30" x 30" and is painted in acrylic on pages from the book Women Who Love Too Much.

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.”
