Robert Hodgins is one of South Africa’s leading artists. Hodgins has exhibited extensively in Europe and the South Africa and the work of this octogenarian can be found in private and public collections both locally and internationally. This is the second exhibition of ceramic works by this highly respected artist in 18 years . This exhibition can be seen as a retrospective of his works made between 1989 and 2007. There will be at least 50 new works available for acquisition.

Says Hodgins “Being an artist is about putting something into your subject matter that isn’t inherently there. You are not at the mercy of your subject matter, it’s the content, and what you put into it, what you do with it, what extract from it, and what you put it with, that is so exciting. If you are aware of this, then you begin to build on the content of your whole life. Before you know where you are, you’re already thinking about the next work, and you could live to be 300. Paintings can be one-night stands or lifetime love-affairs – you never know until you get cracking”.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a extensive coffee table book documenting the ceramic art of Robert Hodgins; researched and written by Retief van Wyk
