Whitewash
In 2015 the world saw a severe refugee crisis in Syria.  The UK Government at the time began a ‘Vulnerable Person Allocation’ where certain refugees would be allowed access into the country.  Certain parts of the country held protests and carried out intense vandalism.  What I have recorded in this series which I call ‘Whitewash‘ are the actions of those covering up the racist vandalism aimed at this refugee crisis.  The white paint left as a scar reminds us of our past, as well as celebrating a victory against racism.

Captive
Over 8 million pieces of plastic enter our oceans every day, killing around 1 million marine animals each year.  Plastics are one of the biggest threats to marine life, with more than 90% of them believed to have toxic plastic particles in their stomach.  It is now 100 seconds to midnight.

Beyond Four Walls
This piece challenges the psychological notion of ‘home’. ‘Home’ is a place associated with comfort, where we relax and feel safe. Growing up, I found that moving house became something quite routine, where the typical domestic environment was a place that often changed. To find grounding and peace, I escaped in the outdoors. No matter where we moved, the sky always looked the same, the trees always resembled each other. Getting lost in nature became my home, it became my four walls.

In 2018 Hodgson was awarded the Adobe Design Award for commercial print, graphic and illustration. Prior to this he had been awarded two Senior Academy Awards as an alumnus from an Academy in the North East, UK; Andrew Morrison Senior Award in 2018 for recognition of outstanding work in the public domain and the Bob Raymond Senior Award in 2017 for acknowledgement of his work in the fine arts.

Hodgson has worked nationally and internationally on his projects, exhibiting works at various locations in the UK; including his work ‘Surveillance Society’ and ‘This is your life’.
