The Artist: Thomas Sherlock Hodgson (Canadian, 1924-2006)
One of Canada's most collected abstract artists, Tom Hodgson was a member of Painters Eleven. He was a graduate of the Ontario College of Art in Toronto.
Hodgson was on the Canadian Olympic canoe team competing in Helsinki in 1952 which was also the same year he sold his first painting.
A wonderful opportunity to add or start your collection of fine Canadian art.
The Story: This was a birthday gift from the artist to the consignor in 1989. The consigner, who is also an artist, says that Tom was an huge influence on her work. In going through her studio and getting ready for a new stage in her life, she is now ready to let go of some past memories and experiences. And that is why she is consigning this beautiful ink drawing.
Hodgson, the consigner said, was like many artists in that their drawings were very precious to them. "Tom was free in drawing the body and was so confident in his work he could finish it by throwing coloured ink on to it. He was an amazing colourist, in fact, he made colour sing."
"A funny story," the consignor said about how they met. "Tom was a talented athlete and he was also very balanced yet highly focused in each activity when he was doing it. We met when he was about 63 years old – in an aerobics class."
