Anna Hodgson
In her textile instillations, Anna Hodgson explores the realm of connectivity in the wider world by observing organically created patterns that mirror patterns in expansive nature. Such patterns resemble formations in fungi to plants to the symmetry in how birds fly and fish swim. Anna uses repetitive domestic processes like sewing to produce unpredictable patterns which ultimately mimic nature, and perhaps expose the careful design of the universe expressed in Chinese religions like Taoism as ‘the way’. This contemplation can be seen specifically in biomorphic patterns that appear in her work. Alongside her artistic enquiries, enjoyment characterises the other half of Anna’s practice. The artist hopes to provide a pleasurable sensory experience for her audience that she herself encounters from her tactile sculptures.
