" My creative impulse is driven by a fascination with childhood paraphernalia: dolls, toys, fairy tales, stage sets, fun fairs, found objects mixed with whimsy. These personal recollections are complimented by the cultural heritage of Victoriana, vintage fashion, film iconography, pin-up imagery etc. We cannot escape the past and our sweet yesterdays, whether imagined or real, are my repository. Any search for particular meaning in my idiosyncratic work may not yield much. If one word were chosen to describe my paintings, it would be ‘edgy’. Superficially they may appear ‘cute’ but my intention is to unsettle, albeit subtly. As the creeping wasp on the fairy cake does." - Xue Wang

Growing up in suburban Sydney, Lachie Hinton
’s association with city life was not without an intrinsic value for nature. Engaging his acute sense of observation is essential in absorbing the world around him, from which he seeks to express human experience. Hinton regards honesty as the most important factor in his artistic endeavours, and seeks to reflect this through his subjects. Drawing has been second nature to Hinton, as he can remember his interest with capturing people's faces and expressions starting from a very young age. It was during this time that he realised his fascination with cartoons and the influence of hyperactive, warped animations of the 1990s on his drawing style. Finding inspiration in relationships between people, places, social situations, human interaction, and emotion, he translates conditions of contemporary life into art. It is these motivations that lead him abroad to observe and document contrasting life and culture. Working with a mixed media of ink, graphite, charcoal, watercolour and oil, he often focuses on the extreme aspects, taking aim at social issues and strewing their insides over paper and canvas.
