Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present its fourth exhibition by multidisciplinary
American artist Jim Hodges. Here Hodges presents a new body of
work consisting of sculpture, drawings and paintings. These works chart a
new direction for Hodges, building on his continuing rearranging of concepts
of nature. Works are installed in both gallery spaces.
Hodges’ work has always revolved around ideas of time, loss, life and love.
Using a wide array of materials, he is able to transform the simplest of gestures
into poignant experiences for the viewer.
Our experience of the work is the defining feature of Hodges’ practice. He describes this as “The
potential and fullness of experience, [the] limitlessness of things … mind, body, colour, space,
proximity, distance, memory, psyche, and spirit”.
This exhibition follows Hodges' recent retrospective that toured Dallas Museum of Art; Walker Art
Centre, Minneapolis; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
In 2014 a text-based sculpture ‘With Liberty and Justice For All’ was installed on the exterior of the
