From the mid- 1990s Hinkson resumed working in oils and his later
exhibitions included a number of large canvases. Simultaneously
he worked on figurative wood sculptures in cedar, samaan, mango
and a variety tropical woods - his interest rekindled by the German
sculptress Luise Kirmme residing in Tobago.
Jackie Hinkson has also worked in conte crayons, charcoal and ink
drawings.In 1982 he was commissioned by the Government of Trinidad
and Tobago to produce One Hundred pieces of work showing the "disappearing
architecture" of the country. Some of them can be seen in National
Museum and Art Gallery, Port of Spain, Piarco International Airport,
Trinidad and Queen's Park Cricket Club.
Visits to Europe at that time added another dimension to the themes
of his watercolours, and he produced several sketches and paintings
while in Florence, London, Paris. In recent years Hinkson has been
working closely with Barbadian born artist Ian "Sundiata" Stewart.
The two share a common interest in water colour, sculpture and oils.
Hinkson's interest in other artists' work continues with particular
interest in the work of watercolourists John Sell Cotman, William
Turner and especially Winslow Homer. Homer's Bahamas watercolours
have had a strong influence on Hinkson. Piero della Francesca, Goya,
Chardin, Bonnard, Edward Hopper and Homer are the artists whose
work he particularly admires.
