The ideas that give birth to Hutchinson's works of art spring from his experience as a traveler, student of nature, and gardener. Many are based on the theme of the mixed landscape, where distant parts of the world are brought together in a way the artist compares to the cross breeding of plants or the introduction of exotic plants into non-native areas. In Berlin-Mexico, Hutchinson combines three separate experiences in one collage: a memory of a Mexican landscape, a visit to the cactus garden in the Berlin Botanical Garden that awakened his memory of Mexico, and a second trip to the Berlin garden to photograph the cactuses for this work.
