  • Catalogue Essay

    "Both soliloquy and declaration, Hodges’s text approximates the structure of a sonnet, creating sentences that envelop the reader in a seductive imaginary landscape even as the actual landscape described in the isolated letters excised from colorful photographs pictures a vibrant reality that transcends the plaintive tone of the poem." Jeffrey Grove, Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take, exh. cat., Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, p. 62
