Paul Hotchkiss is one of the founding members of TransCultural Exchange.
Metaphors of silence and emptiness figure throughout his drawings and
paintings. One body of work deals with exclusively with vacuum diagrams
borrowed from science; while another body of work examines the subtle
viscosities of atmosphere. He is a paint specialist who travels national
wide restoring historic theaters and churches "so that even the most
innocent looking line is pregnant with historic associations."
