Jim Hodges creates ephemeral installations with a variety of textiles. Materials include slender silver chains with which the artist makes webs, or delicate paper napkins upon which he has completed small drawings of flowers and other doodles. Using these nostalgic and tender materials, Hodges's curtains of silk flowers and other works seem to create sites of delicate permanence in the face of a shifting and sometimes dangerous world. As an artist in residence, Hodges worked with schoolchildren to create a work of art in his own gallery exhibition by marking children's height on a wall in colored pencil, ultimately creating an intricate design of heights and markings.
