Corey Hitchcock – I migrated several years ago to the Sierra foothills from SF bay area and aspire to the job title: Interpreter of the Wild, but meanwhile I am an interdisciplinary artist, which means I skip around in my disciplines to tap various visual media from painting and printmaking to video and installation. Include in that mix writing, koan study, and cultivating the wild as a shamanic practitioner and student of zen. I pursued an Art & Anthropology mix as an undergrad, apprenticed with Don Graeme Kelly and Susan Acker of Feathered Serpent Press in San Anselmo and became the proprietor of a small letterpress: Wild Hare Press, which printed poems and broadsides and limited edition books. In the 90’s I discarded heavy metal (presses) for digital concerns and a certificate in Multimedia Studies at SFSMC. I painted through it all, attended the SFAI and eventually received my MFA from JFKU’s Arts & Consciousness Dept. (Berkeley) in 2005. I occasionally channel Fox, not Fox Channel, but wild Fox and other significant koan allies.
