Contrast and Reflection: Sculptures by Jim Hodges

I would love to see these works in person. The contrasts are intriguing—the dwarfing of the the room to the sculptures, those to the viewer, and the organic vs. the synthetic material and color. The collection, by Jim Hodges, is currently showing at New York's Gladstone Gallery.

According to Trend Tablet, Hodges' use of mirrored surfaces was inspired by a recent trip to India, and the collection of common-place and precious materials combined with the transformation of objects to mirrored surfaces draws together three major planes: personal, universal and political. Through this focussed design, "Hodges seeks to evince the immemorial; timeless discourses of identity, loss, mortality and love," forcing viewers into an introspective place where movement and observation—both of self and surrounding—takes precedent over the work itself.
