Meg Hitchcock

Meg Hitchcock is a Brooklyn based artist using spiritual text from diverse faiths to create  stunningly intricate artworks which seem to distill the essence of spiritual teaching and offer it back visually as a moment of stillness and contemplation. 

The patience, tenacity and commitment to finishing these works which sometimes take years, is something I can relate to and find my practice can be mind numbingly difficult yet rapturously rewarding.

In my creative work I weave together spiritual traditions by cutting up the text of holy books letter by letter and refiguring them to create passages from other holy books. I incorporate and ‘cross pollinate’ the sacred writings of all spiritual traditions, suggesting that all religions derive from the same source, and are sustained in the same unwavering faith.
