Through his long-standing interest in urban culture and his chosen medium of needle-work, as is seen in his 2006 exhibition, from textile to concrete at Blue Oyster Art Project Space, Hutchinson employs his immediate geography as a way of understanding it’s contexts and histories and the effect of such understandings on the individual.
