Howard Hodgkin: Seven New Paintings Notecard Set
This notecard set was produced on the occasion of the exhibition Howard Hodgkin: Seven New Paintings at Gagosian, Davies Street, London. It includes seven blank folded notecards featuring Hodgkin’s paintings and envelopes, in a jacket case.
In these small-scale, jewellike paintings, Hodgkin depicts vibrant traces of human experience inspired by his memories and encounters. Using bold gestures that seem to push beyond the confines of the diminutive format that he has chosen, each work is at once a completely autonomous composition and a suggestive synecdoche of the greater aesthetic reality that lies beyond its limits.
