British-American artist Peter Hutchinson is recognized as a pioneer in both the land art and narrative art movements. Displacing a venerable landscape tradition from canvas to real space, Hutchinson's early conceptual artworks document ephemeral interventions he creates with the landscape. Photographs (often in color or colored) capture his use of such materials as flowers, food and found objects in natural environments like the ocean, mountains and fields. Handwritten texts that both describe and comment upon the circumstances of each creation accompany the photographs and in so doing Hutchinson's works are explorations into the layered, interrelated qualities of nature and language.
