About the artist
Hitchcock received his bachelor of fine arts from Cameron University in his hometown of Lawton, Oklahoma. He later earned his master of fine arts in printmaking and photography at Texas Tech University in Lobbock, Texas. Currently, he is an artist, professor, and Associate Dean of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he teaches screenprinting, relief cut, and installation art.
His work has been featured at numerous prestigious national and international institutions. Hitchcock uses the print medium “to explore relationships of community, land, and culture.” Furthermore, his “works on paper and multimedia installation consist of prints and moving image that mediate the trauma of war and the fragility of life.”
