Ricky Sikes’ Internal Landscapes explores the eerie, peaceful, chaotic and sometimes intimidating nature of the dense forests of his home in Louisiana and other regions of the Deep South. The complex reality of forests inspires him. His paintings echo his internal state of mind when he is immersed in a tangle of vines and a dense canopy of trees. Rick Sikes is a practicing artist and educator based in Little Rock Arkansas. As a mixed media artist and painter he works in many genres including portraiture, figure painting and sci-fi illustration. He is currently the Representational Painter in Residence at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He earned his Masters of Fine Art degree in Studio Art from Louisiana Tech University and he received his Bachelors of Fine Art degree specializing in illustration at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.
