Charlotte Hodes - Remember Me - Solo show at Wolverhampton Art Gallery 3 June - 3 September 2017

Remember Me: Charlotte Hodes Papercuts and Ceramics, at Wolverhampton Art Gallery

The acclaimed artist Charlotte Hodes will be exhibiting new work including an ambitious site specific twelve metre long frieze commissioned specially for the Gallery.

The solo exhibition Remember Me: Charlotte Hodes Papercuts and Ceramics opens at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Lichfield Street on June 3 and runs until September 3.

A leading figure in contemporary art, Hodes’ work brings together both fine and decorative arts as evidenced by her critically acclaimed exhibition at the Wallace Collection in 2007. Hodes also won the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2006.

Councillor John Reynolds, cabinet member for City Economy, said: “The gallery has always been a great champion of new art work and we are delighted that Charlotte has agreed to work with us on this exhibition.”

Her newly commissioned artwork will consist of 120 individual wall-mounted ceramic pieces, arranged to create a single image that combines elegant historic patterns with contemporary and digital imagery.

The exhibition will also include a collection of her signature papercuts as well as a table top installation of more than 350 plates, which demonstrate the artist’s incisive and challenging approach to the aesthetic potential of domestic objects, both past and present.
