Howard Hodgkin

Time and Place

23.06.2010 — 12.09.2010

Modern Art Oxford

A new major exhibition of paintings by Howard Hodgkin explores the acclaimed British artist’s use of abstraction as an expression of subjective experience. Spanning ten years of the artist’s career, the exhibition will include paintings not previously seen by a broader public, including a powerful body of new work developing out of his Home, Home on the Range series of 2008. Together, they will highlight the physical as well as emotional charge of Hodgkin’s art through his use of scale, sensitivity to light and his ability to create painterly equivalents of depth and atmosphere using colour and brushstroke.

Howard Hodgkin Time and Place is organised by Modern Art Oxford in partnership with the De Pont Foundation, Tilburg, and the San Diego Museum of Art, to where it will travel in September 2010 and February 2011 respectively.
