"Lone Wolf (Daddy)," 2019 is one in a recent on-going series of small drawings Hitchings has been developing which she considers to be snapshots of a larger narrative investigating social psychology and the environment. Each piece integrates language–often derogatory slang–pertinent to the artist's personal history with somewhat serene yet surreal landscapes. Positive and negative space alternate and patterns emerge which counteract the natural aspects of the space, leading to an uncanny composition of order and disorder depicting the delicate balance between human and nature.
