One of a kind
This piece is part of the Historic Jar Collection and recalls Manet’s painting of the same name. While Manet sought to confront the viewer with Olympia’s gaze, as she was a known sex worker, Hodge’s reinvention of the scene focuses on the connection between the two women in the scene. Instead of Olympia looking out for her next client, she is captured by this woman’s gesture of affection in the form of a bouquet.

Alex Hodge was always drawn to the arts and regularly channeled her creativity as a child whether in watercolor classes or scrapbooking with her mother. She attended the University of Georgia and received her BFA in Ceramics in order to learn the ways of coaxing clay. While at UGA, Hodge had her first solo exhibition, Unsung Muses, in addition to her BFA show, Eyes That Bind. She graduated summa cum laude along with other honors, such as the Outstanding Undergraduate Award and Mary Rosenblatt Scholarship. After graduation, she spent the summer as the Ceramics Instructor for URJ Camp Coleman, where she realized her potential as a teacher. She then pursued her MFA at the University of Miami, where she has received the MFA Summer Fellowship as well as the William Oberman Award. She will graduate summa cum laude after the conclusion of her thesis exhibition In Light of Her. She continues to pursue teaching as the Camp Manager and Instructor for Clay Camp at the Ceramic League of Miami and as an adjunct faculty at the University of Miami. Though she naturally finds a place in teaching, it is her studio work that is the driving force of her existence.
