Ree Hodges

Ree Hodges from Newcastle, NSW, is a visual artist guided by her innate passion for artistic expression.

From an early age, Ree was drawn to the charming allure of art, quietly observing the world around her and immersing herself in its expressions. Though initially reserved, her passion for creativity served as a silent catalyst, guiding her on a journey of self-discovery.

Infused with a soft and feminine aesthetic, Ree's work evokes a sense of serenity and beauty, inviting viewers into a place of tranquillity and introspection. While her repertoire predominantly comprises gentle abstract pieces, evolution towards more adventurous experimentation with bolder colours, contrast, and defined contours has been a welcoming one. Combining the two styles, she uncovers a harmonious balance between them.

Ree's creative process is an exploration of colour, a symphony of hues drawn from the rich tapestry of everyday life. Whether inspired by the delicate shades of dawn's first light, the raw emotion of personal experiences, or the rhythms of music, each stroke of her brush serves as a testament to the boundless beauty found in the world around us.
