Stephen Hutchings

"There is more to Stephen Hutchings’ new paintings than meets their mechanical reproduction. What is lost in the images that illustrate this review, and even in those that pop up on the web, is not just the scale, but the worked-over surfaces of these seemingly consolidated pictures. The paintings’ intense luminosity picks out single tree leaves and blades of grass even in these illustrations, but much of the elaborate creative process--the scratching, rubbing, and overlaying of paint–is apparent only in the originals. Some of Hutchings’ ironic undercutting of the Romantic idea of nature is thus lost in reproduction."

- Review published in Border Crossings Magazine, Issue #109, February 2009, pp 100–102 by Petra Halkes
