Jim Hodges’ works are meticulously assembled visual diaries made from familiar materials such as curtains, mirrors, artificial silk flowers, glass, silver chains, and light bulbs. In Creep (2009), a branch-like form gracefully stretches beyond the edges of the watermarked paper. From his complex arrangements of broken glass to life-size monochromes of black, gray, and white camouflage fabric, Hodges’ delicate works explore themes of fragility and temporality in a highly original and poetic vocabulary.
