Jim Hodges was born in 1957 in Spokane, Washington and received his MFA from the
Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Since the late 1980s, Hodges has created a broad
range of work exploring themes of fragility, temporality, love and death utilizing a
highly original and poetic vocabulary. His works frequently deploy different
materials and techniques, from ready-made objects to more traditional media, such
as graphite, ink, gold leaf and mirrored elements. Charting both the overlooked and
obvious touchstones of life with equal attention and poignancy, Hodges' conceptual
practice is as broad and expansive as the range of human experiences he captures.
He has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in the United States and
Europe and has been included in various significant group exhibitions, including the
2004 Whitney Biennial. A major retrospective of Hodges' work, organized by the
Walker Art Center and the Dallas Museum of Art, is scheduled for 2013/2014. Hodges
currently lives and works in New York City.
