Oil on Board
Chance1 by Brian Hodgson
Brian studied Painting with photography at Maidstone College of Art and these twin disciplines have informed his work since graduating with 1st Class Honours.
As Head of Art at a school in Africa he re-evaluated his life's work and on returning to England launched his new series of work in an exhibition at the Light Gallery, London in November 2006.
This series is a collection of contemporary oil paintings and prints 'at first glance appearing to be vivid photographs and the careful framing of his compositions owing much to the photographer's craft. However the skillful precision of the images suffused with translucent light and casting bold shadows, demonstrates the mastery of the painter' .
Brian’s images have their beginnings in the familiarity of everyday objects and places. When acted upon by different lighting conditions these situations can be transformed and therefore evoke a memory and mood. It is the capturing of these constantly changing forces that informs his present art practice.
