Christoper Hodges

"Christopher Hodges has been making sculpture in various forms throughout his career, at the same time producing paintings, prints and drawings. His sculptures do not preclude these other elements of his practice. In fact their forms are also enacted in countless renditions in pencil and paint, which span from sketches in notebooks to finished products in their own right. In such a way, his sculptures contemplate that interchange between surface and space, the flat and the three-dimensional, line and edge." (Chloe Watson, 2012)

Hodges has been exhibiting regularly since the late 1970's and his work is in many public, private and corporate collections, including the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and Queensland Art Gallery.

Christopher Hodges' public sculpture 'the white flower'August 2009


Spring has arrived early in Hunter Park, opposite Balmoral Beach. Christopher Hodges' latest public sculpture 'the white flower' has just been installed.

It was first proposed by Mosman Art Trust and commissioned early last year. This specially prepared site, with its slight elevation, allows the sculpture to be enjoyed from all directions.

The simple organic form is a classic Hodges work. At 2.5 metres tall this painted steel sculpture sits happily in its new home.
