About

“My practice shifts between drawing, painting and animation with a strong grounding in observational drawing. Current work explores the deep time embodied in glaciers and ice sheets.”

Nicholas Hutcheson is an artist based in Melbourne, whose practice encompasses drawing and animation. Through repeated drawings of a subject, he develops his own system of codified signs and shapes, a kind of shorthand or idiom. His work explores the manifestation of time – on landscapes, structures and the human form. Since moving to Australia, Nicholas has exhibited in both solo and group shows nationally. He has been an artist in residence at Bundanon and Arts Fellow of the Australian Antarctic Division.
