BELONGING TO THE LAND is a collection of Professor John Hitchcock’s resent works on paper and neon sculpture. 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. 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, air, and water.
