Simon Hodgson was born in Sydney in 1972 and completed his BFA (Honours) in sculpture at the National Art School in 2012. On graduating he was awarded the Robin Gibson Gallery Prize which allowed him to be in their annual graduate exhibition New Talent in 2013 and will be having his second solo with them in 2017. He has been selected as a finalist in the Gosford Art Prize, Sculpture in the Vineyards at Wollombi and Sculpture at Sawmillers at McMahons Point in Sydney, and included in Sculpture by the Sea at both Bondi and Cottesloe

The combination of an interest in architecture and landscape; Simon’s sculptures fuse the two languages to create environments that establish an uneasy tension between the logical and the visceral. Simon’s sculpture is about how we exist as bodies in space. The sculptures seek to investigate the way in which we inhabit space both internally and externally. The sculptures invite the viewer to explore these ideas about space in both a physical and imaginative way by creating spaces that they can envision themselves physically inhabiting, while also restricting that access and only allowing the viewer to imaginatively inhabit the space. A correspondence between the real and the imagined – the connectedness of the inner and outer self.
