A profile of Houston-based artist Robert Hodge and his recent work at Artpace:
“The music has always been there, lingering in my presence,” said Robert Hodge, a Houston-based artist. Artist in this sense isn’t limited to a solitary field, though: Hodge is a visual artist, a musician, a producer, and a creative entrepreneur. Recently on view as part of Friendly Fire at the Station Museum of Contemporary Art, Hodge recreated his studio, blown out across a wall. The central point of this installation was Hodge’s piano. Studio visits and interviews with the artist always seem to involve music in some capacity, whether playing something from his collection or an album he produced. Over the past few years, it has played an even more significant role in his visual practice.
