Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This vessel is part of the Unsung Muses series, and it illustrates various versions of the Goddess Astarte in juxtaposition with rows of pattern and text. The text on the body of the vase is comprised of transgender women’s names who have been killed in hate crimes. Astarte is the goddess of both Love and War, a true Warrior Goddess, which perfectly represents the kind of protection and veneration that these trans women deserved in life, as well as in death. The neck of the vase has two quotes from trans women, one of whom is Laverne Cox. They both lament the fact that trans women are most often attacked just walking outside, living their lives.

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.
