Jim Hodges’ work explores themes of fragility, temporality, love, and death in a poetic vocabulary. He frequently deploys different materials and techniques: from ready-made objects to traditional media such as graphite and ink. Often disarmingly simple or executed with minimal means, Hodges’ works express a sentiment of deeply felt experience and encourage a visceral and communal response. Incorporated in his choice of media and articulated in text and image is a narrative of human experience, one of life and death and of the proximity of contingency that affects us all. For Converge 45, Hodges contributes two new works: a new piece for YOU IN MIND (PNCA) as well as a project for the public realm that amplifies local actions to address homelessness.
