Jim Hodges

Since the late 1980s, Jim Hodges has created a broad range of work exploring themes of fragility, temporality, love and death utilizing a highly original and poetic vocabulary. His works frequently deploy different materials and techniques, from ready-made objects to more traditional media, such as graphite, ink, gold leaf and mirrored elements. Charting both the overlooked and obvious touchstones of life with equal attention and poignancy, Hodges’ conceptual practice is as broad and expansive as the range of human experiences he captures. He is the recipient of several prestigious awards including the Association Internationale des Critiques d’art in 2006, the Albert Ucross Prize in 2001, and The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award in 1995.

Hodges (b. 1957, Spokane, WA) currently lives and works in New York City. Hodges is represented by Gladstone Gallery (New York).
