Artwork Info

the official website of photographic artist Thomas Hodges

The artworks page of my website has been recently updated, to incorporate an information link immediately beneath the thumbnail of the artwork series.  That link will take you to the blog posting of the series in question, wherein you will find full details and information on that specific artwork series.

My artworks are currently undergoing an inventory check and update, so some of the links are as yet not live, but all will be updated during the course of the coming weeks.  Earlier series that have not be featured previously on my blog, will of course now be featured, so effectively, this blog will become the principal source of information for all artworks I produce.

I have numerous new artworks series pending release, so watch-out also as they are listed both here and on my official website (the link to which is now shown to the right of this post).

I believe this change will facilitate my artwork collectors (both existing a future) by providing them with an immediate source of information on all of my artworks, both technical and inspirational.  Of course, prices are not given, but are available immediately upon request.  Kindly note that I do not sell my artworks directly, as in loyalty to my agents, dealers and representing galleries, all purchase enquiries are communicated to a representative.  The only exception to this is in regard to benefit sales and the like, which are administered on a case-by-case basis.

Enjoy my work and thank you for your continued support, which as a full-time professional artist, is greatly appreciated!

Propaganda ~ the next in series . . .

 

(1972-1976) China as Paradise

(1977-1997) Modernization

The artwork series “Propaganda” undertaken in joint collaboration with Canadian graphic artist Anthony Yang, has taken its next stage forward, with the completion of the second in the series of 12 artworks.  The series is scheduled for completion by year-end 2011, and will exhibit in 2012, with an anticipated public showing in both China and Taiwan, before exhibiting internationally.

The complete series consists of six female and six male nude figures, each with propaganda posters from a specific period in Chinese history, graphically overlaid onto the model’s bodies.  Each figure is set against its own individual background.  The nude is representational of a blank sheet of paper, an open-mind, filled by the writings and influences of the propaganda of the period in question.

Full information on the project can be found via the previous blog post, which can be accessed via the following link: http://photoconception.com/blog/?p=173E

“In Dreams” ~ sneak preview!

In Dreams

Not available as yet, but allow me to present you with a sneak preview of my new exhibition series that is entitled “In Dreams”.

Sigmund Freud postulated that dreams are the symbolic expression of frustrated desires that had been relegated to the unconscious mind, and he used dream interpretation in the form of psychoanalysis to uncover these desires.   “In Dreams” presents you with with a visualise insight of this process and a true celebration of female beauty!
