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.

” I make photographic images by opening heart and mind to their naturally wakeful state—a vivid, raw, intimate experience—like licking honey from a razor blade and not backing away. Choice of subject is guided by what flickr colleague Brad Wise calls the hidden energies within ordinary objects. This has helped me to take myself less seriously, accept that everything changes–and eventually ends–and realize that extraordinary and ordinary both manifest from the same essential energy. The viewer brings his own openness and life to his collision with art and artist, and finds resonance, annoyance, recognition, excitement, or boredom. Or, as my young friends say, It is what it is and It’s all good. I have been inspired by a line from Rilke’s poem THE WAY IN: Whoever you are, some evening take a step out of your house, which you know so well, enormous space is near…….. Rilke wants us to see that infinite space is right in the midst of our ordinary, day-to-day life. Step out, he says. See the extraordinary in the ordinary! Then, familiarity gives way to shock and awe as we come eye to eye with life’s inconceivable spaciousness and vastness–existing alongside the world we know so well–reveals itself. We may become confused in that moment, as well, and ask: is this nonsense, clear seeing, fantasy, or the true nature of reality? Often asked about my water and ice images Is it real or is it Photoshop? the answer, almost always, is This is how it really is. A photograph captures a MOMENT–too brief to see. Within the moment is a FLASH–color, form, or movement–always different, always extraordinary. A photograph FREEZES the moment. Ice, light, and water move, morph, flash, and change. Little pieces of paint take on a life of their own, suddenly exploding, colors streaming everywhere–CLICK–and then, they are gone forever. It is at once so breathtaking, heartbreaking, and compelling that I have missed more than a shot or two. ” – Cliff Briggie

This video work deals with ideas of isolation, security, shelter and of shaping one’s own environment. The video documents an eleven-hour performance during which I crocheted myself into a cocoon using red yarn. I crocheted continuously without breaks and the video shows the entire performance in real-time. Link here.

” I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa to German parents. Later immigrating to Australia as a 9 year old growing up and educated in South West Sydney. After having a very interesting first career, my career path took me back into the arts. I am very happy now in the solitude of my arts practice in my secluded studio. After completing a Diploma in Fine Arts from South West Sydney Institute of TAFE, majoring in printmaking but loving sculpture as well. With further studies in Printmaking at NAS and Wollongong TAFE, I work between my plastic toy sculptures and my printmaking. The plastic toy assemblages, disturbing to some, I see as my humorous side and my printmaking is what I consider more my voice………” – Freya Jobbins
