Realism and Expressionism
Whilst he initially wanting to study fine painting in fine art, due to impaired vision (from an accident as a child) he had difficulty in seeing and mixing colours and realised that he had more of an affinity with three-dimensional art.
The early sculptures of Hitchcock were exploratory in nature and diverse in technique and style. Subject matter tends towards realism and expressionism of the continuity of movement in space and the subjects themselves include natural forms, and realistic modelling of animals and figures in movement.
Hitchcock later moved away from this early realism to a more stylised and abstract search of forms and planes. After graduating in 1969 he worked in plaster factories fibreglass factories and various bronze foundries. Working in these factories he would learn plaster piece moulding techniques.
