Jim Hodges is a New York-based installation artist.

Hodges, born October 16, 1957 in Spokane, Washington, received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Fort Wright College in 1980 and his Master of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 1986.

Since the late 1980s, Hodges has created a broad range of work exploring themes of fragility, temporality, love and death utilizing a highly original and poetic vocabulary. His works frequently deploy different materials and techniques, from ready-made objects to more traditional media, such as graphite, ink, gold leaf and mirrored elements. Charting both the overlooked and obvious touchstones of life with equal attention and poignancy, Hodges’ conceptual practice is as broad and expansive as the range of human experiences he captures.

Hodges has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in the United States and Europe and his work has been included in various group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
