The desire to paint comes from deep within, an attempt to convey the jumble of lights and colors that shoot around between synapses. Seeing the world in a different light can be a very enlightening experience, one that the artist hopes to pass on to the viewer.
Jesse Hitchens' paintings are an evocative blend of contemporary realism, impressionism, and imaginative realism. The juxtaposition between his light calm works and the darker moody work, make his work unique. Regardless of the mood evoked, the desire is to give the viewer a sense of place and time.
