BALANCE

Utopia Art Sydney

30 August - 20 September 2014

One of the challenges of making a sculpture is ensuring that it stands up...

 

Many of Christopher Hodges’ latest works threaten to fall. They tilt precariously into space. And yet, their steel forms are perfectly poised over bases that are not simply a support, but crucial to the work as a whole.

 

As the artist explains, “to create balance within a sculpture you need to have every element sitting in harmony... I’m seeking a refinement of form so that it can speak freely and truly.” 

ABSTRACTION

Utopia Art Sydney

28 June - 19 July 2014

Christopher Hodges’ tilting sculpture 'Flamingo' extends upwards into space precariously, its radioactively pink form humming gently, lighting up the wall behind it. Here, Hodges uses the harmony of proportional geometry to create formal tension. 3 is the magic number in this sculpture, which is 3m tall, .3m wide and .03m deep. What’s more the sections of the form are perfect thirds, set at subtle angles that play with the relationships between symmetrical lines. When standing before this work, its mathematical intricacy may not be not readily apparent but its delicate visual balance is dizzying.
