Opening: Wednesday 10 August, 6-8pm
Dates: 10 – 27 August 2016


This new series continues Gregory Hodges interest in the ways illusionistic painting devices can be applied to an abstract picture space. By adapting and translating historically associated techniques, such as illusionistic trompe l’oeil, into a contemporary idiom he considers how these affect the ways we experience and interpret abstract paintings. Consisting small scale and large paintings on canvas this exhibition considers the oscillating relationship between the eye and the body, illusion and materiality, stasis and motion, flatness and spatiality.

Hodge constructs compositions by collaging painted abstract motifs on paper. These collages serve as source material that he then renders in paint. By manipulating paints’ translucent and opaque qualities, the paintings playfully mimic the physical fragility and provisional nature of the paper source material.

Hodge has exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions within Australia. recent solo exhibitions include A Fabled Gesture, Canberra Contemporary Art Space (2015) , and Collages Sullivan+Strumpf Sydney. Recent Group exhibitions include Right Here Right Now, Penrith Regional Gallery (2015) Mind the Gap Casula Powerhouse Sydney (2014) and Word of Mouth, Canberra Museum and Gallery (2012). In 2015 He was the recipient of the Australia Council Rome Residency and in 2012 undertook a residency at BASSO in Berlin Germany. In 2013 Hodge was the winner of the Hazelhurst Art on Paper Emerging Artist Award. Hodge has been a finalist in several national awards including The Fishers Ghost Prize (2014) the Doug Moran Portrait Prize Sydney (2013), The Blake Prize, Sydney (2013) and the AGNSW Brett Whiteley Scholarship (2010).
