ARTICLES from PUBLICATIONS with PRESS-EXCERPTS (1999-2006):
“While incorporating photography, oil paint, computer graphics, wood planks and even feathers, Hinton’s art pieces remain fluid. At first glance, it is hard to pick out the different parts of the whole…The backgrounds of the pieces burst with warm colors that connote vivacity and life. Amidst the mixture of nature and cultural memorabilia, such as coins, map fragments and photos, Hinton subtly weaves in abstract technological images, like brain waves, to convey the interconnectedness of the world.”
-Nancy Wang, “The Collage grows up at the Bryan Center’s Louise Jones Brown Gallery,”
“Through photographic collage she illustrates some of the oral history that is prevalent among the tribes of the Southeast. While the medium she uses is very modern, her subject matter is ancient. In addition, she uses both amorphous and very literal figures, generating a multi-layered effect. In so doing, she takes iconic figures of the oral tradition, such as the deer man, and filters them through a modern lens, portraying the beauty and complexity of Indian tradition in a contemporary world.”
-Raquel Chapa, “Evolving Traditions,”
“Using layers of lush greenery, woodland textures and indigenous imagery, Tuscarora and Osage artist Alyssa Hinton celebrates her connection to the land and people of North America in organic themed collages. She composes rich visual Narratives that talk about the path she took to finding her cultural identity and a restored sense of communal belonging.”
-Linda Martin, “New Faces: Alyssa Hinton,”
“Alyssa Hinton’s talent allows her to dip from the tribal memory and expose the roots of her people. By uniting human with nature and past with present, she challenges her audience to remember their own history as it really is.”
-Deanna Dunham, “Tribal Memories Come to Life,”
“Her evocative, landscape-related collages engage themes related to American Indian cultures and their spiritual traditions. Black and white images of blanket swathed Indians juxtaposed with fragments of urban road maps in her two pieces from the series The Heart of the Nation/Refugees effectively comment on the cultural displacement of North America’s original inhabitants and the resultant problems faced by their descendants. Composite images that suggest cross sections of ancient burial mounds allude to the longevity of American Indian history in works such as Hinton’s Ancestral Plane, Slumber, and Spiritual Archaeology/Descendants and Ancestors. And the mystical aspects of Native American religion provides the focus for Creator/Cosmos, Ancient Fire, and Light and Sound/The Fourth Day.”
