LONDON.- Following the success of Charlotte Hodes’s exhibition at the Wallace Collection, London, in 2007, Marlborough Fine Art will be holding its’ first exhibition of Hodes’s work.

The exhibition will feature approximately 20 ornately decorated ceramics, a group of which are considerably larger and more ambitious than the ceramics displayed at the Wallace Collection. Complimenting the ceramics, and shown alongside, will be a series of intricately cut collages.

The depiction of the female figure, drawn from contemporary and historical sources, is the over-riding and recurrent theme. The figure set against a rich tapestry of pattern, drapery, repeated motifs and held together through intensely pulsating colours of pinks, purples and greens evoke a sensuousness and a sumptuous feeling of celebration, simultaneously questioning the position of the female figure as decorative motif.

Charlotte Hodes studied at Brighton College of Art, 1977-78 and at the Slade School, University College London where she completed her undergraduate and postgraduate studies in painting in 1984.

She was Associate Artist at the Wallace Collection, London from 2005-2007, and Winner of the Jerwood Drawing Prize, 2006.

Recent Solo shows include "Fragmented Images: Wallace Collection 2007", "Drawing Skirts", Baring Wing, University Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2008, and "Figures and Patterns", Flow Gallery, London, 2006.

Group shows include: "Glasstress", Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti 53rd International Venice Biennale, Venice. "Cartoon, Collage and its Decorative Motif", Eagle Gallery, London 2006. "The European Design Biennale", Design Museum, London 2003, and "Waste to Taste", Sotheby’s London 2003.

In 2002 she presented an installation "Cacophony", a cabinet of vases for the series "Digital Responses" at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Charlotte Hodes is Senior Research Fellow in Drawing at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London
