The work of Miriam Hitchcock imagines quotidian scenes in which elements of suburban life move into uncanny dialogues with disparate ephemera. Along with this conceptual focus on disjunction, Hitchcock’s paintings, works on paper, and videos reflect tireless material investigation. Working improvisationally and intensively, surfaces are treated multiple times. Marks of happenstance, drips and blots, interact with intentionally figurative strokes. The rigor in process is paralleled in Hitchcock’s pursuit of a vast and nuanced visual vocabulary, including sources as varied as medieval painting, popular catalogues, and local newspapers.
