ROSALIND HODGKINS “Re-constructed Nature”
Natural phenomena of day & night and the cycle of the seasons inspire the concepts for my paintings. I experiment with images, free associating them in sketches until the idea takes a form that feels right. I use unusual scale, invented perspective, shadows, reflections as well as symbols and metaphors to construct a narrative picture of images of nature seen from an imagined vantage point. This show will be my 7th feature show at the Artery Gallery.
My education includes a BFA from Pratt Institute, study at The New School, Art Students League & Hull College of Art in England. I lived in NYC for 40+ years, had several one-person shows and many group exhibitions in NYC, Canada & England. My work has been reviewed in several major art publications. rozhodgkins.com
I love to paint the faces and spirits of people that should’ve been able to live forever.
I am drawn to painting what moves me, whether it’s a person, a building, a metaphysical question, or a social issue. My glasswork is a passionate blend of color, and design, taken to the next dimension by the transporting effect of light.
Although I attended Jersey City State College and the School of Visual Arts, NYC, I’m mainly self-taught . My creative work and spiritual experiences grew through the study and practice of painting, stained glass design, and spiritual mediumship.
