The Dirty Sexy Bitch Buddy, 2015

This piece forms part of Hodway’s body of work while he took an extended “holiday from serious art”. During this time he treated his practice in a much more playful way, experimenting with a vast variety of paint application techniques “just to see what would happen.” It was during this exploratory time that he discovered many of the techniques that underpin his current practice. Referencing the comic books of his youth, that initially pointed him towards art, the graphic lines, dramatic poses, bold colours, and strong symbols would recombine in new ways in later work. In many ways this piece can be seen as a seminal one in his catalogue of works. In it we can see a return to text, symbols, and figurative content.
