Catalogue Note

"'I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck,' Bacon had said. Agreeing with him, Hodgkin attempts to find what is beyond his omnipotent control, 'what happens when you splash the stuff down.' What happens has the potential of being 'definitive' -- decisive and unconditional -- precisely because it yields to the risk of the unexpected. As Proust as well as Freud made clear, we cannot organize a quest from our memories; only stumble onto them by accident or be fearlessly passive and trust that will cause them to appear.
