The role of drawing in the work of Charlotte Hodes

Coldwell, Paul (2014) The role of drawing in the work of Charlotte Hodes. Journal of Visual Art Practice, 13 (2). pp. 85-100. ISSN 1470-2029 (Print), 1758-9185 (Online)

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Coldwell, Paul

This article is based on material from Hodes' Inaugural Professorial Address at London College of Fashion (11 March 2014), which was conducted as a conversation with the author. The article considers the role of drawing within Hodes' overall fine art practice, particularly in relationship to her large-scale papercuts and ceramics. It addresses the manner in which drawing is used by Hodes as a primary research tool, to gather information and assimilate influences, and how digital technology works in conjunction with traditional means of drawing. The article focuses on particular projects to examine how Hodes engages with collections and archives as starting points for a more personal investigation, which invariably involves the female figure as a central motif. In this respect, how Hodes uses herself as the model offers insights into an embodied approach to creativity.
