“Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die. Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever”
John Hitchcock uses the print medium with its long history of commenting on social and political issues. 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 Fort Sill. Many of the images are interpretations of stories told by his Kiowa/Comanche grandparents and abstract representations influenced by beadwork, land, and culture.
John Hitchcock is an Artist, Professor of Art and Associate Dean of Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Professor Hitchcock has served as Faculty Director of The Studio Learning Community and Art Department Graduate Chair. He is an award-winning artist who uses the print medium to explore relationships of community, land, and culture. He has taught printmaking at UW-Madison since 2001.
