Beginning while still a student he has explored the full gamut of graphic multiples, including screen-printing, lithography, collage, carborundum etching, aquatints and hand-colouring.
In 1982 he worked intensively in Ahmedabad, Gujerat with hand-made Indian Khadi paper. It was brought to him as it was made, still wet and he had to paint on it with vegetable dyes before it dried.
In 1990/1991 Hodgkin worked in Wiltshire where he imprinted 30 sheets of hand-made Indian Khadi paper with images of waves. He then painted over them in gouache to evoke images of India. Put aside and then forgotten, they were first exhibited in 2014.
Hodgkin’s work has often played with elements of theatre. He has designed sets and costumes for opera and ballet, scarves, murals for architectural projects in London and Delhi, book illustrations, textiles for Designers Guild, posters and other graphic work.
Drawings and other works on paper, including rare preparatory studies.
