About Jim Hodges

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.

American, b. 1957, Spokane, Washington, based in New York, NY, United States
