Tobias Hodson Artists Statement

Fifteen years designing and building gardens created a broad and versatile base from which to explore flower painting. the choice of subject, its layout, and representation in two dimensions have architectural roots.

In each of my paintings Iím seeking to glimpse the strangeness of existence by studying the beautiful.

This study reveals each object as a hieroglyph that speaks the otherworldliness of our own world.

In the work I inhabit the tense place between the extremes of formal representation and its counterfact, natures mysterious otherness.
