Ade Hodges paintings

I have been a great fan of Ade Hodges paintings over the last few months. Below is just one of many.

His paintings’ unique strength. Abstract but graspable. Nobody has achieved this feat so well in art history – until now. IMO. Seriously.

Without really believing it was his intention, I playfully suggested on Facebook today that the above painting was a depiction of the race course scene from ‘My Fair Lady’. Big hats, race course buildings, horses. Then maybe Royal Ascot? Until I suddenly realised that Ade is a Cheltenham artist. So perhaps the Cheltenham Gold Cup? Not that I am remotely interested in horse racing! And not that the painting was remotely about this subject matter! (Or was it?)

Just for the record. Another painter I admire: David Welham.

And, of course, Tony Lovell’s artwork: http://expenscusil.wordpress.com/ – http://horroranthology.wordpress.com/ – http://exaggeratedpress.weebly.com/busy-blood.html
