Black and White Layers of Ian Hodgson

So I think I’m getting used to this whole new technology thing, but I still may publish this post half way through by accident… Like yesterday… And I had only noticed after it was published that I had called the artist Jon instead of Joe… The air was indeed blue for a moment. It also means lots of spelling mistakes! Don’t judge – I can’t spell at all… This is why I paint Ha!

Today I’ve been looking through the work of Ian Hodgson over my morning coffee. I love the use of layers in his work, I feel it adds depth and movement.

The drawing techniques that I use expose other, seemingly invisible layers, and here the drawing process acts as a metaphor for the physical and psychological experience of my journey, as fragments of what went before are revealed on the paper. (Ian Hodgson)
