Judge Brock Q Piper

Brock Q Piper was the Judge for the 2019 George Hicks Foundation Contemporary Exhibition.

"As an artist, I am compelled to explore personal experiences and translate them into paintings, drawings and poems to express that which cannot be understood without the abstraction of creation. It's about one's own past being observed outside of context, and how we self-assess by exploring the past through our present understandings."
