These ghostly graphite drawings are something to behold

Ian Hodgson is a superstar artist. Famed for his isolated figures in void spaces, his work is reminiscent of muscular, heroic Old Master drawings. He is that rare thing, a truly exceptional artist yet to break through to a mass audience.

One thing that’s irresistible about Ian’s work is the depiction of a moment in time.

Through his work he speaks of “emotional architecture, psychological landscapes”, articulating the significance of identity and place are chief among his concerns. Ian’s work jolts the viewer into an alteration of states, “Memory. Visibility. Revelation of the hidden. Liminal space. A moment suspended.”
