Tom Hodgson’s spontaneous style of painting is evidenced in the mixed-media work “Untitled”, dating to 1963, presenting a pleasing contrasting palette of coral and teal, as well as a striking combination of line and shape. By the late 1950s and early 1960s in New York, artists began to break away stylistically from Abstract Expressionism to experiment with new ways of handing colour and line. In this composition, Hodgson appears to be inspired by these avant-garde movements, most notably, Color-Field painting. Although this painting maintains a strong gestural component that is signature to Hodgson’s work, it also contains adjoining areas of colour that are reminiscent of Helen Frankenthaler’s influential staining techniques of the early sixties.
