Peter Hutchinson  (British, 1930) 

whitespace
Peter Hutchinson (American/British, b. 1930) is a conceptual artist, and one of the pioneers of Land Art. Hutchinson was born in London and grew up in the English countryside. In 1953, he moved to the United States, graduating in 1962 with a BFA from the University of Illinois. After his time at university, he moved to the East Coast, first to New York, where he lived until 1981 and created various Land Art installations.

Hutchinson was inspired by early landscape painting and garden art, due, in part, to his English roots. Hutchinson’s Land Art tries to intervene through less intrusive interventions in nature, attempting to integrate itself into its surroundings. Hutchinson examines processes and changes, as well as decline and decay in nature, and always integrates part of the existing landscape into his art.

During his travels around the world, Hutchinson collects found objects, which he then incorporates into his artistic assemblages. In addition, the artist deals with photo collages. He arranges selected objects from his travels, as well as elements from his own garden, creating new, colorful, ideal landscapes. In some of these compositions, he includes oil pastels, gouache, and colored pencils. All of his artworks contain a handwritten note from the artist.

His works are represented in collections such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Basel, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
