Created over a period of more than five decades, this exhibition follows artist John Hitchens’ journey of artwork development ‘from early descriptive paintings to increasingly abstract ways of interpreting landscape, reducing its forms to lines, circles and patterns.’
With his work becoming influenced by photographing landscape, Hitchens gained awareness of land as a two-dimensional composition and was able to develop his painting. This exhibition includes work which has never been seen by the public before.
