CAROLE HOGDSON (b 1940)
Carole Hodgson was born in London, studying at Wimbledon School of Art in 1957-62 and then went on to the Slade..
Hodgson is an artist of extraordinary variety and versatility. Her materials have ranged from bronze, glass and gouache on paper to cellulose fibre and concrete. Her influences have been equally eclectic, including ancient Greek sculpture, the Welsh landscape and Edwin Smith's photographs of mantlepieces. Hodgson's work, however, transmutes its sources and materials into a unique and consistent oeuvre, concerned with the enduring universality of form and beauty.
