The vast majority of painting draws inspiration from an external source. Reference, even kept to a minimum, is that which binds the work to a shared world.

In these paintings the artist has chosen to visually recreate patterns left by atomic sized particulate impacts. She animates the action and extracts single frames of interest to be recrafted in paint. The results serve as a reminder of the unseen frictions that make life interesting.

Hodgkin has earned her place among an exciting new breed of artist. The directions that technology has been offering these visual pioneers encourages limitless possibilities in form, composition and communication. Currently, great success has been achieved in the fusion of traditional and digital media but there is cause to wonder if the remnant of human touch need exist in the future.

In order to take such strides, reviews of computer assisted imagery may need to overcome irrational embarrassments and accept that humanity and technology will continue an unwavering course of integration.
