Harold Hitchcock
Early Morning - Receding Tide

About

Harold Hitchcock,” the poet Emmanuel Williams writes, “paints pictures of scenes that seem to exist halfway between this world and another. Like Hieronymous Bosch, one might say, or Salvador Dali. The difference is that Hitchcock’s scenes are not based on a vision of horror, nor of a dislocated world, but of light, of radiance, of a dimension that is simultaneously recognizable to us, yet paradisaical. We are drawn into complex, improbable, light filled arrangements of mini-vistas... His work ushers the viewer into a deep stillness, a radiance and harmony. Hitchcock takes us into the primaeval garden, into a state - rather than a location - that feels like Eden. There is no greater gift than this.” Paul Gallico (1897-1976), the fantastic fiction writer, said Hitchcock’s paintings “are windows opening out onto the world of wonderful dreams, magical forests of exotic trees, leaves and flowers and of deep silences. There is a Through-the-looking-glass Wonderland quality about them that offers a haven to the weary spirit... This artist’s fingers hold the brush, but whither it will go and what forms will emerge not even Hitchcock knows until its done. It is this quality that makes him singular and his art an enchantment.”
