"Everything Flows" Art Exhibit

Nov 10 - 11, 2015 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Nate Hodge uses art as a means to explore his observations through their temporality. As his brush moves along the canvas, it becomes a reflection on the lack of equilibrium; his representation of the disturbance is a natural component of systems and relationships confined to a surface. Often the process begins with a colonizing mark that spreads exponentially across the surface like an invading, alien organism. In natural systems there is a tendency to move towards entropy, but found within this entropy are moments where beautiful and delicate forms develop before dissolving. Within his paintings, he embraces the change, accepting that things will form briefly and then fall apart, dissipating into a new beginning. The painting is never finished; it is just introduced to a different surface where the ideas that were at play in the last moments of the painting set up parameters for the beginning of the next work.

Artist Lecture is scheduled for October 8 at 12:30 followed by opening receptions at 1:00pm and 5:00pm.
