Marcus Hodge - Abstracts Inspired by the Gateway of India
"This is the pivotal exhibition in Marcus Hodge's established career. It represents a radical departure from representational painting towards work of a more abstract nature. Many of these symbolic paintings were inspired by a further trip to India and time spent in Mumbai. The Gateway of India left an indelible mark and so became the starting point for a series of paintings, as well as a metaphor for the stylistic change taking place. Pictures were complete, not when no more could be added, but rather when no more needed to be removed."
