A little bit more about Ian Hodgson
Originally from Yorkshire I graduated from Bradford College in 2000 and moved to Brighton where I continue to live and work exhibiting locally and nationally.
Examining how identity is imprinted with memories connected to place, objects and relationships creates a framework for my drawings to develop. In some works architecture is the defining presence, whereas in others figures or objects inhabit the space but all refer to the transformative process of journey.
The drawing techniques that I use expose other, seemingly invisible layers, and here the drawing process acts as a metaphor for the physical and psychological experience of my journey, as fragments of what went before are revealed on the paper.
