> DESCRIPTION

Traces of the Plains consists of works on paper.  A multimedia installation of printed matter and video, the exhibition references the trauma of war and fragility of life. Artist John Hitchcock sets familiar images of U.S. military weaponry against unfamiliar mythological and hybrid creatures originating from the Wichita Mountains in western Oklahoma to allegorically explore the notion of assimilation and control.

About the artist: John Hitchcock uses the print medium with its long history of social and political commentary to explore relationships of community, land and culture. He is an artist and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he teaches screenprinting, relief cut and installation art. He earned his MFA in printmaking and photography at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, and received his BFA from Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma. Hitchcock has received numerous awards, including the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation and Collaboration grant, and has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally.
