Abstract: Jim Hodges's enchanting, multi-faceted work appeared on the 1990s art scene like a ray of sunshine, his artistic illusions with light and mirrors inverting the often alienating postmodern disillusionment of much contemporary art. Favoring the sensual over the sensible and the infinitely perceptual over the tediously cerebral, his works are all activated by light and thematically allude to landscapes. The work is not simply decadent, as disclosure of deeper layers provides enlightenment through visual pleasure. Hodges's lighthearted twists on art history are charming and inviting to diverse viewers, whose engagement completes the work.
