Artist's Greenham exhibition of new and seminal work spans 40 years of art-making

Newbury artist Margaret Hodges is showing new work alongside seminal earlier pieces in At This Point: Tip of an Iceberg, which opens at at New Greenham Arts on Thursday.

A fascination with materials and ways of construction run parallel to her consideration of situations and concepts, including the universal need for shelter and the dichotomy of public and private life.

Hodges worked independently, exploring different media, before training formally in fine art at the University of Reading and in Environmental Media at the Royal College of Art.

For several years she ran a life drawing class at Newbury College and taught in the media studies department, and during the 1990s, she inaugurated the course Art Now, at the University of Oxford's extra-mural department before Tate Britain began its own long running series of contemporary exhibitions under that same title.

In 1999, she was the first artist to take up studio space at New Greenham Arts. Now, she is saying: “Look, here are aspects of the world distilled through my explorations and presented for you, the viewer, to think about in your own way.”
