Part of the stand will be dedicated to Jim Hodges. This will include new paintings and drawings that are inspired by 'Old Growth' forests in Oregon. These are woodlands that have not undergone any man made changes for more than a hundred years and contain both young, mature and standing dead trees. These paintings are poignant musings on the beauty of seasonal change and the passing of time, using delicate mark-making and soft tones to create an unabashed celebration of beauty and the transience of nature. By changing the orientation of the landscape, Hodges powerfully alters its meaning and the way the viewer interacts with it. This follows Hodges' exhibition at the gallery in 2016 which marked his return to painting.
