Women, Chaos and X, a collection of recent work by painter Maggi Hodge, explores the relationship between women in today’s world, the chaos of that world, and X, a symbol stretching from the possible to the forbidden.

Hodge examines our politically, emotionally and sexually chaotic world with bold brush strokes, rich, dynamic color, and raw, unfettered gestures. A powerful grace within each canvas speaks to the compliment of chaos, the beauty in so-called disorder and the subsequent birth of the latent creativity within. (Please RSVP).

Woven into this exploration is the question: What does it mean to be a woman in today’s shifting society, juggling multiple roles and learning to pursue a balance between power and nurturing? Hodge’s representations of the feminine reflect the emotionality and mystery of the female: powerful, vulnerable, ecstatic, sad.

These myriad layers of the feminine state engage oppositions historically and culturally represented by the letter X. At once affirming and negating, an expression of acceptance and then rejection, X not only protects, it exposes. It’s hot and cold nature reflects both the female state and the chaos it confronts on a daily basis.

“Maggi Hodge’s Women, Chaos and X is exhilarating, heartbreaking, challenging, and wild. Hodge’s canvases hold nothing back. They fully engaged us, never precious, truly unique.” — Laura Hull
