Collage has been an important process and conceptual framework for Gregory Hodge’s wider painting practice. In his series Spectator and the Pit, Hodge presents a set of new acrylic paintings on canvas and a suspended painted cut-out that utilizes new processes and techniques signalling a further expansion into the artist’s unique visual language that playfully explores the space between image and reality, representation and abstraction. Where Hodge’s earlier paintings were trompe-l’oeil renderings of abstract collages, this new body of work is informed by three dimensional suspended constructions arranged in the studio that became source material for new paintings.
