Monroe Hodder‘s paintings are all about colour, a vertible explosion of glorious colour, layered thick, upon thick, her canvases a proliferation of opposites; spiritual and the sensual, geometrical and abstract, discipline and chaos. They’re large pictures which I can’t give justice too. Here’s what she has to say about her love of colour and abstract painting:
My impulse is to fill up an abstract repetitive structure with the delicious disorder of paint. My work is a child of minimalism but the rules are bent and the grid has gone awry. I paint in large, messy stripes that wobble around and go out of bounds. My interest is in the ways I can use colour inside and across bands. I like to confound myself with infinite possibilities, choosing a colour such as blue and running other hues over, under and right through it.
Hodder has an upcoming exhibition at The Andre Zarre Gallery, 529 W 20th St, New York, in November, 2012
