Crow's Shadow is excited to welcome John Hitchcock to Crow's Shadow for a two-week residency from May 31 - June 11, 2021.
John Hitchcock is an artist and printmaker in Madison, Wisconsin where he is also a professor of art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Hitchcock uses the print medium, with its long history of commenting on social and political issues, to explore his relationships to community, land, and culture. Hitchcock’s artwork consists of abstract representations, mythological hybrid creatures (buffalo, owl, horse, deer), and military weaponry (tanks, bombs, and helicopters). His artworks are based on his childhood memories and stories of growing up in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma on Comanche Tribal lands next to the US field artillery military base Ft Sill. Many of the images are interpretations of stories told by his Kiowa/Comanche grandparents and abstract representations influenced by beadwork, land, and culture.
Join us on June 10th for a virtual event in our studio; we will introduce John, talk to him about his process and experiences at Crow's Shadow, and see a sneak peek of his prints in progress. There will be a short Q&A session, too.
