Charlotte Hodes' work takes the form of intricately cut, large scale papercuts and work onto ceramic. Her working methodology is informed by collage; both the digital of ‘cut’ and ‘paste’ of the computer and hand cut and paste in the studio. The depiction of the female figure, drawn from contemporary and historical sources, which include skirt pattern templates from the London College of Fashion archive library, is the overriding and recurrent theme. The work seeks to evoke a sensuousness and a sumptuous feeling of celebration, simultaneously questioning the position of the female figure as decorative motif.
‘Following on directly from my exhibition ‘Silhouettes and Filigree’ 2009-2010 at the Marlborough Gallery, ‘Inscriptions’ provided a very different opportunity for me to present work in a way that highlighted process rather than completion. The valuable discussion between the curators and artists was instrumental in shaping the ideas for the exhibition. I was fascinated how our shared departure points using mark making, the signature of the gesture and thinking through drawing, led to the different outcomes revealed in the show.
