Charlotte Hodes

Charlotte Hodes’ work centres around the female figure figure within a contemporary context depicted as a silhouette juxtaposed with motifs loaded with female associated references such as the vessel and skirt. She draws upon the decorative and applied arts, fashion and costume, often using archives and collections as a source for projects. She works by hand and digitally both with drawing through which I build an 'archive' of usable visual imagery and with collage. Her work addresses how the fragmented and tactile nature of the ‘cut’ and ‘paste’ of collage can embed meaning.
