Modern Monday: Dallas Modern Artist David Hickman Speaks to the World with Movement

Walking through his garden at the White Rock Lake home he shares with his wife Linda, you can see each colorful piece of skyscraping artwork he created by hand has the graceful function of mobility. Tall figures of parrots, hummingbirds, fish and a Cajun band stretch across the grounds amid plants and poised, stone sculptures.

“It’s very exciting because every day is totally different,” Linda Hickman said. “It’s pretty amazing to see how he starts something — to watch how he thinks of something, quietly muses over it and how it turns out.”

As a young man working on the farm in his childhood home of Gainesville, Texas, Mr. Hickman became inspired by how things were set in motion — the gears of a tractor, the movement of windmills, the trains passing over tracks and the planes that flew overhead. He learned to weld as a necessary part of his farm work and he said his tough work ethic stems from his days working the land. The result is a willingness to see opportunities for artistic expression in everything.

“I’m not afraid to do anything — mosaic, stone, wood-making. I like variety,” he said.

Mr. Hickman’s history is just as varied going from simple doodling during his school days, to serving in the U.S. Navy, to attending Cooke County Junior College and the University of Texas in Arlington and studying sculpture with Octavio Medellin. He even owned a motorcycle shop which aided in his fascination with kinetic energy. His last career before transitioning into a full-time artist was working as a mechanical designer for Johnson & Johnson.

“There was just something in me,” Mr. Hickman said about leaving his day job to become an artist. “Other people and friends said I should do art all the time instead of designing machinery. I became more satisfied building things with my own hands for my own purpose.”

Mr. Hickman uses those hands from start to finish as he creates small models and sketches of a project to pitch for commissions. He is currently working on concepts for the mass communications department at Texas Tech University, a baptismal font for Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen and pieces for the State Fair of Texas.

“Other artists may design something small and turn it over to someone else to build but that’s not much fun for me,” he said. “I like to create an idea and build it myself. I get real satisfaction conceiving an idea, presenting it and having it be accepted.”
