Hodgson says of her work, “We experience the space around us through continually shifting conditions. We observe, layer and overlook countless details to compose a unique, unrepeatable, and momentary 'sense of place'. Our senses perceive sound, light, and movement; language influences what we notice; memory records and references; time stretches with new experiences and contracts with the familiar. The way we experience our surroundings shapes this sense of place as much as our surroundings direct these experiences. 

To investigate these relationships, I use the repeatable, unpredictable, and tactile qualities of printmaking. And through suggestive or shifting scenes, I create a space to consider where place and perception meet, and the complexities in the simple act of looking.”
