Episode 10 : Series of Shorts: Howard Hodgkin

Hodgkin is super neat because he paints in lose, large, and  strong strokes over the frames of his paintings. So in effect, the paintings are about the paintbrush and the frame first and then about colour. Or you could argue that it's all about colour, too... His minimalist way of painting brings the painterly to the maximum, it overtakes all the space available on his surface.  Or you could argue as well, that it's all about emotion, of course. Bold, muttled, garbled, primal emotions. Whichever strike your fancy, it's all there to be discovered!!  Photo: Howard Hodgkin Fisherman'Cove
