Distinct Patterns: Works by Sam Hodge & Ernesto Romano

London From 14 November to 21 December 2020

Presentation
Romano and Hodge share an interest for natural textures, their transmutability and continuous evolution and destruction through time. Romano plays with the superimposition of different elements, and Hodge extracts the essential lines of the watersheds, remodelling the real landscape into an abstract image. The two artists, each with a distinctive style, engage in an elegant fusion of different patterns celebrating the ever-changing beauty and mystery of nature.

Ernesto Romano's work is an exploration of the human body. His visions relate to dream-like states and the unconscious, reminding us of the power of the human mind and soul.
Since an early age, Romano has been interested in horticultural gardens; this led in later years to the intense scientific study of the botanical atlas and the cultivation of precious floral species. In his new series 'In The Eyes of the Beholder', he took detailed images of individuals' eyes, which he overlaid with photographs of blossoms, creating unique personal portraits of timeless beauty.

Patterns of growth and disintegration are the focus of Sam Hodge’s work with paint and print. Materials are constantly morphing, and new forms emerge from simple physical processes such as erosion, compression, fracture and flow – repeated and complex - but always different. Her depictions are like poems attempting to stir our imagination and emotions, reflecting on life's uncertainty and creating new meaning. Hodge is interested in our response to the shifting and unstable nature of our material world, our attempts to understand, control, collect and endow matter with significance.
