John Hitchcock: Traces of the Plains

John Hitchcock: Traces of the Plains is a high energy attack on nerve endings, a graffiti like assault with screenprint and drawing with mixed media markings of large animal skull like faces and skins, floating over tanks and military imagery. He references the notorious Ft. Sill military base so you can imagine the animals standing in for other brother native species, like us.

There’s also multi-media and a fantastic printed large felt installation titled “epicentro”. He was just in a well-received group show at 516 Arts, the downtown Albuquerque gallery, where he presented similar printed felt mural installations at last summer’s “Air, Land, Sea” exhibit; please check his work at Hybrid.net.
