Today’s ARTLOVE are paintings by Tom Hodgson (1924-2006). Hodgson was a Canadian painter, born in Toronto. By all accounts he was quite a wild one* 👀 Here are three of my favourite pieces of his: Street Scene #3, 1958; January ‘58, 1958; and Untitled, 1958. I just can’t get over the gorgeous colour, shapes and line. Superb! If you want to read further about him, please check out the beautiful book Painter’s Eleven, The Wild Ones of Canadian Art by Iris Nowell.
*he has quite a story and as a side note, he was also a two-time Summer Olympian in canoe sprinting.
