DescriptionClassic Hitch – In a continuing series of an ongoing relationship with the ordinary and everyday, I have reached out to others for them to share with me the things that form their everyday. These are the things that they might reach for in different times of the day yet do so automatically, without much thought. For example, ‘Maldon Sea Salt’ goes on pretty much everything I eat which, when given further analysis, acts in some way as my maintained and physical connection to Europe – the salt from the sea is an essential part of my physicality.
‘Classic Hitch‘ – I’m purposefully not sharing the identities of those that shared their sometimes very personal stories with me. We know that writers mine their friends and family for story and character ideas but did you know painters do it too?
This oil painting is after a great director/producer I used to work with, in my time as a documentary cinematographer, who had a great knowledge of and appreciation for the work of Alfred Hitchcock.
