For Hodgkinson, drawing is a process of abstracted translation, the line acting as a stream of consciousness or, as Erika Naginski describes it, ‘…an activity that exemplifies an imagination in flux.’
His strikingly graphic monochromatic prints set eloquent gestural lines against flatly intense colour fields, creating lyrical compositions that flicker between the abstract and the representational. His languid figures are quietly reflective, sensual and poignant, inviting the viewer to reflect upon the fading role of the romantic in post-modern art. His art has a sense of musicality; controlled but never controlling, and above all, felt.
