Jim Hodges works with the most ordinary materials—silk flowers, paper napkins, silver chains—to create his works of art. Here he has expanded his network of materials to include colored light bulbs available at many hardware stores. Part of the impact of Hodges’s work is that his materials are widely available to most people, showing the art-making process as open and comprehensible rather than closed and inaccessible. In 1998 Hodges had a solo exhibition of his work here, titled Jim Hodges: Welcome.
