Hitchcock, Jones and Lowe featured in State Journal for 'Native Art Evolving'

April 09, 2017
UW-Madison's John Hitchcock, Tom Jones and Truman Lowe from the Art Department were recently featured in the Wisconsin State Journal for their work in the Promega Spring Art Showcase, "Native Art Evolving."

Hitchcock is a printmaker who often uses his art to explore the relationships of community, land and culture, drawing on printmaking's long history of social and political commentary, reports the State Journal. 

Hitchcock explores themes of safety, security and protection in work and his interpretations of stories told by his Kiowa/Comanche grandparents.

Jones presents photography exploring the identity, experiences and perceptions of American Indians. Jones' work challenges assumptions made by Native and non-Native people, and "he harshly evaluates romanticized historical images of Native peoples taken by white photographers."

Jones is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, as is Lowe.

Lowe creates sculptures from natural materials like feathers, wood, rawhide and stones. His sculptures draw on the patterns of nature and how materials can be adapted from generation to generation.
