Kevin Hutcheson worked in collage, drawing, painting, printmaking and sculptural installations. He chose to work deliberately with limited means - newspaper, sandpaper, second hand books. He developed a distinctive practice that employed imagery and text taken from a range of printed sources, as a way of articulating his own intimate experiences using a collective language. Through these means he explored different questions of both personal and cultural history, of context and narrative.
Hutcheson was one of Scotland's most influential artists of the last twenty years and was especially respected by his peers in the Glasgow art community. Born in Hamilton, Scotland in 1971, he graduated with a First-class honours degree from the prestigious Fine Art course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee in 1997. He subsequently gained his MA from Chelsea College of Arts, London in 2002.
In 2019 we received an Art360 Foundation Award to protect and make accessible Kevin's archive. Work is currently underway and more details will be announced in 2021.
