Statement

My work is based on an awe of the invisible world revealed by science.

My painting practice is fueled by advances in imaging technology. I delve into the worlds of microphotography and experimental physics for inspiration, transforming its visual information into structured representation. I reveal an invisible microcosm - from atoms to cells - where the unseen forces which govern all matter are made visible in what I call 'The Infinitesimal Sublime', a realm both magical and sinister.

As technology has revealed this microcosm, I incorporate seminal imagery into my paintings, endowing clinical scientific images with a sense of the sublime. Magnified visualizations of unseen forces cause rapture and awe through their beauty and potential terror. In exploring these different visual paradigms, my objective has remained conceptually consistent over the 30-year arc of my career.

I incorporate an emerging digital language into the historic tradition of painting. I employ the mark of the hand to present this digital language, while exploring reproductive methods from photosilkscreen and inkjet print to painting. I revel in the tactile presence of painting, using the material properties of paint to simulate and interpolate. I also enjoy infiltrating the male-dominated fields of computer science, genetics, neuroscience and physics

Solo shows have ranged from New York; Cincinati and San Francisco to Tokyo, Japan and New Delhi, India. My work has been featured in group shows at museums and galleries in the United States, Japan, India and Europe including "The Digital Body", ZKM Center for Art & Media in Karlsruhe, Germany and "Excess in the Technomediacratic Society", MusÈe Dole, France. In 1998 she exhibited a brief survey of her work at Nature Morte Gallery in New Delhi.

Public commissions include "TRAJECTORIES", a 3-story digitally-based mosaic mural for Remsen Hall Science Building at Queens College, New York. Hodgkin has been awarded fellowships from the Gottlieb Foundation the Pollock Krasner Foundation , the New York Foundation for the Arts, Artists Space and Dieu Donne Papermill, New York. In 2002, I received a WTC Recovery grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
