Emergence A Pop-Up Sale & Exhibition By Jonathan Hodge solo exhibition features work by representational painter Jonathan Hodge.

Hodge is an aspiring Aristides atelier artist at Gage whose work has placed at Best of Gage and has work published in medical journals, commissions in private collections, and has shown in group shows around the nation.

Hodge’s Artistic Statement:

“As a painter, I’m inspired by the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity. As a New Orleans native impacted by Hurricane Katrina, I was very moved by the thousands who lost lives, family or belongings. And with the increasing abundance of such natural disasters, as well as man-made ones, I feel constantly challenged to find glimmers of hope in these struggles, and to paint them as realistically and with as much compassion as possible. With respect to these themes, I find inspiration in painters like Rembrandt, Gericault and Mancini and modern masters such as Steven Assael, Max Ginsburg and Odd Nerdrum. I believe art has the power to move people and that the most effective, beautiful and truthful way to do that is through realism.”

To engage in fanciful daydreaming.

“Woolgathers” is an upcoming exhibition at the Gage Academy of Art, showcasing the multi-disciplinary visual and conceptual approach of five Seattle-based artists, each of whom presents a practice-based exploration of establishing narrative through the re-working, re-purposing and re-imagination of art mediums and material processes. Hanging in conjunction with “Once there”, a solo show by Jeremias Lentini built around the idea of structural re-birth, and “Emergence”, a solo show by Jonathan Hodge exploring a more representational approach to physical depiction, this group exhibition creates a parallel between formal and organic approaches to realized image, and the beautiful potential that lies within tactile creative play. A few of the artists featured are Anastasia Zielinski, Jon Graizar, and Philippe Pirrip.
