12th January 2014 Howard Hodgkin at Gagosian Gallery, Time Out REVIEW FROM THE GUARDIAN GUIDE 29TH NOVEMBER 2014 Howard Hodgkin London Howard Hodgkin said he’d forgotten all about these gouaches (work pictured) until the Wiltshire printing workshop where he made them in the early 1990s returned them to him recently. Yet there’s every reason to pay attention to these bold, layered works that channel the painter’s lifelong muse: India. In a primary palette of red, yellow and blue shading into the green of a warm sea, his thick semi-abstract crescents and coils conjure rainbows and sunsets. Their immediate appeal to feelings and associations is classical Hodgkin, as is the involved process behind their creation, beginning with printing then finishing with expressive hand-painting.
