Women, Chaos and X

A Solo Exhibition by Maggi Hodge

September 28 – November 2, 2019

 

“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.” — Laura Hull, Artist and Photographer

Upcoming:

Morph

 November 9 – December 21, 2019

 

“Throughout art history, artists have intentionally distorted the human figure to create some of the most well known and impactful masterpieces. The featured works function together as both an acknowledgment of the historical trajectory of artists creating figurative works, and a deviation from the standard ideas of taste, pushing the boundaries and redesigning figuration as the artist imagines it to be. By contorting the figure, the artist advances the composition, generating the bizarre with the goal to lead the viewer through an open-ended story of emotional intensity and humor. Morph is an incautious attempt to capture the opposite of reality and provoke a challenging artistic appreciation.” — Haleh Mashian, Curator
