John Hitchcock

Inspired by the long history of social and political commentary within the discipline of printmaking, Hitchcock frequently uses the medium to explore relationships of community, land, and culture. His artworks examine notions of safety, security and protection, not just of country, but our environment and flora and fauna. Hitchcock uses images of beads, bombs, floral patterns, buffalo and owls to speak about issues of indigenous historical trauma. Many of the images are interpretations of stories told by his Kiowa/Comanche grandparents and abstract representations influenced by beadwork, land, and culture.

Hitchcock earned his MFA in printmaking and photography at Texas Tech University, and has been the recipient of The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation and Collaboration grant, New York; Jerome Foundation Grant, Minnesota; the Creative Arts Award and Emily Mead Baldwin Award in the Creative Arts at the University of Wisconsin. He is currently an Artist, Professor, and Associate Dean of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin–Madison where he teaches screenprinting, relief cut, and installation art.
