Philip Hitchcock, a native of St. Louis, has been a sculptor for more than twenty years. Specializing in lifecasting techniques, his sculpture heightens and magnifies the captured realism of his subjects. Hitchcock's art encourages the viewer to enter a constructed reality of outward appearance, not only challenging contemporary society's assessment of physical beauty but also society's inconsistent standards of what is appropriate when one depicts the human form.

Hitchcock has garnered numerous awards and accolades for his work including the 2006 Artistic Achievement and Public Relations Award from the Association of Lifecasting International (ALI); the 1997 Broadcast Design Award for MGM/UA's Outer Limits limited edition sculpture, and the designation of being counted among "The OUT 100" in 2001, an annual list of the 100 most influential gay men and lesbians in America, according to OUT magazine. Dark Impressions, The Art of Philip Hitchcock was published in 2000.

Hitchcock's work has been featured in solo and group exhibits and may be found in prestigious collections such as the Leslie-Lohman Foundation of New York; Mark Taper Family/Mark Taper Forum, Los Angeles, Henry Jewelry, Hong Kong; Barbie Benton, Aspen, and the collection of Michele Rodriguez, Cagliari, Italy.

MONEY
“…I named what I thought was an enormous sum. Without blinking an eye, he gathered up my life work and handed me the amount I asked for: $70… I didn’t expect more. Remember that homosexuality was forbidden in most of the Western world; so all those businesses were illegal, black market. I knew that they wouldn’t have paid me more anyway — or so I believed then.”
