Created at his studio at the Cotton Factory in Hamilton “You Are Many Moves” is a series of abstract paintings that delve into the interplay of line, colour, geometry, and texture in a reflective process that mirrors how Vick navigates everyday life as a person of color.

These paintings consist of intricate mazes of multilayered representations, drawing from memory to interweave metaphorical narratives executed with scrapes, scratches, and visceral color harmonies that work to destabilize and empower. They incorporate digital domains to better understand the analog and convey its voice to the canvas, oscillating between the realms of spirituality and materialism in an ongoing battle.

Each artwork serves as a reflection of his journey, uncovering new meanings and connections within interference fields of oil & acrylic, paint, overlaid by motifs of chance. This series aims to strike a dialogue with the past, comprehend the present, and grasp the possibilities yet to formulate.
