Have you ever noticed how everything goes quiet before a storm- the air seems still and calm, when suddenly a line of ominous clouds appear? It's an intriguing phenomenon that people have recognized for centuries, and the inspiration behind Beau Stanton and Logan Hicks's exhibition, "Calm Before the Storm".

New York based artist Logan Hicks surpasses the standard stencil art concept with his uniquely intricate images. Though created with stencils, he is able to achieve the subtlety of color, light and gradients in his otherwise bold and geometric works. We've previously featured his work on our blog, and soon in Vol. 37, where we take a closer look at his mastery of stenciling. Now exhibiting at 1am Gallery in San Francisco, Hicks' latest series also achieves a painterly quality with haunting details.
