Brian Hodgson

Artist Statement

After leaving Maidstone College of Art with a First Class Honours degree in fine art, and winning the Stowell’s Trophy for painting Brian has worked as a painter and photographer. During a three year stay in Kenya he found in the powerful interplay of light and shadow inspiration for his largest oil panting series - ‘Reflecting In Light’ which has been exhibited throughout the United Kingdom and pieces are owned by collectors in England, France, Switzerland Austria and Italy Keeping a focus on this interplay of the visual effects of light , are enhanced and provoke in the viewer - via the quality strength and variety of light and shade - a connection not only to the landscape itself but to memories , experiences and emotions. The image of a chair; a garden shed; a seaside fence; a net curtain ‘My first involvement is as a viewer sensing the creation of atmosphere by the patterns of light and dark. A recording of this atmosphere is taken via the use of camera and sketches. The framing and stilling of the scene at a particular moment is an important part of the creative process. I work with oils as a painting medium because of the feel it brings to the painting surface with its variety if thickness and colour.’ Collectors comments: ‘I think the small works on wood are very intense and powerful, strangely haunting and peaceful at the same time’ ‘I really liked the work you had on display, the simplicity of everyday objects giving you a feeling of familiarity and recognition, which, for the viewer, automatically relates to personal experiences and responses 2014 Earsham Gallery, Bungay, Norfolk New Artists Exhibition, Islington Lovelys Gallery, Margate
