Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This vessel is a part of the series Unsung Muses and references art historical imagery such as Botticelli’s Venus, the Minoan Snake Goddess, Hera, and the Three Muses. To make the historically idealized women more reflective of real women, I have drawn them curvy, trans and of various races. My hope is that one may see themselves reflected in art, as the Divine, instead of seeing what they should be.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Georgia

Based in: Miami, Florida

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.
