Born 1974 in Melbourne – AUSTRALIA.
Paul Hodges is both a painter and a ceramic artist. Inspired by images of dancers, models and romantic works by the Old Masters, Hodges has concentrated on representing the human figure over the past few years. First looking through magazines and books, he sets about reinterpreting the imagery using ink and occasionally gouache whilst experimenting with colour and form. His work conveys a sense of mystery and dream-like transcendence of everyday life.
Like his paintings, Hodges’ ceramic works are often figurative. Gentle in form, the application of soft pastel colours to the works enhances a sense of fluidity and expression.
