Bio/Research

Dr. John G. Hatch is Associate Dean (Academic) for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and an Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Arts where he has taught modern art history and theory since 1994. He received a B.A. in Economics in 1982 but made a radical career move in 1985 that culminated with a Ph.D. in Art History and Theory from the University of Essex in 1995. His research and teaching interests include examining the intersections of art and science, Dada and Neo-Dada manifestations, post-WWII art (specifically the work of Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Lucio Fontana, and Arte Povera), and 20th-century Neo-Baroque manifestations. The result has yielded publications on the work of Max Ernst, Francis Bacon, Cindy Sherman, Robert Rauschenberg, Frantisek Kupka, to name a few. Dr. Hatch has a particular fascination for the influence Keplerian cosmology in the 17th-century buildings of Francesco Borromini to looking at the impact of entropy on the earthworks and writings of the American artist Robert Smithson.
