Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
Brighton artist Ian Hodgson speaks about techniques he uses to create amazing graphite drawings of people, things and spirit – and Bowie’s Blackstar. Russell Honeyman made this interview at the opening of his latest show at Naked Eye Gallery in Hove, 13 February 2016.
Ian revealed he was making an image of a mirror-ball eclipse (Black Star) when he heard Bowie had died, as part of a series of mirror-ball drawings, one of which won an award in the National Open Art competition in 2013. About six minutes into this 7 minute video.
