Wellingtonian | Graeme Hitchcock
Graeme Hitchcock is driven by a hyper-active mind, thoughts and imaginations of everyday things are often sensed in abstract forms and colours. When Hitchcock first began painting he was able to experience some relief from the pressures of these wild imaginings. Later when he discovered sculpting Hitchcock was able to express himself in new ways that were extremely satisfying to the soul, as he explored the intricate processes of using glass and bronze. His works, in general have subtle connections across the mediums used. As he works on a painting or sculpture, it becomes a part of a story that started a long time ago and which continues to unfold, and every little detail becomes an important part of that story. Hitchcock values feelings of intense joy and happiness as much as the painful feelings of sadness and loss. He hopes that his art will make the observer smile, laugh or question and most of all, feel.
