Abstract form, c. 1966
Carole Hodgson was born in 1940 in London. She studied at
Wimbledon School of Art in 1957/62 and at the Slade School of Fine
Art in 1962-4.
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.
