John Hitchcock: Protectors

June 7, 2018 - September 15, 2018

The Ruth and Seymour Landfield Atrium

Protectors, a screenprint installation by artist John Hitchcock, uses multiple screenprinted images of bison skulls mounted on a background of Naugahyde pelts. The pelt forms suggest landmasses, and each element connects to the environment through form, placement, and symbol.

Inspired by the long history of social and political commentary within the discipline of printmaking, Madison-based printmaker John Hitchcock uses the print medium to explore relationships of community, land, and culture. Hitchcock’s works on paper and multimedia installations draw upon his Comanche/Kiowa and Northern European heritage and consist of prints and moving image that mediates the trauma of war and the fragility of life. Images of U.S. military weaponry are combined with mythological hybrid creatures from the Wichita Mountains of western Oklahoma to explore notions of assimilation and control.

  • John Hitchcock, The Protectors (Skulls), 2017-18, screenprint on Naugahyde and paper, variable size.
