Graeme D Hitchcock

All of my life I have been pushed and driven by a somewhat hyper-active mind, with thoughts and imaginations of everyday things often sensed in abstract forms and colours.

It was when I began painting years ago that I was able to experience some relief from the pressures of these wild imaginings. Later when I discovered sculpting I was able to express myself in new ways that were extremely satisfying to my soul, as I explored the intricate processes of using glass and bronze.

My works, in general, have a subtle connection across the mediums I use. As I work on a painting or sculpture, it becomes a part of a story that started a long time ago and which continues to unfold before me, and every little detail becomes an important part of that story. The emotions are important in my work because I have always been driven by my emotions. I value feelings of intense joy and happiness as much as the painful feelings of sadness and loss.

I hope that my art will make the observer smile, laugh or question and most of all, feel.
