Robert Hodge is a multidisciplinary artist currently working in Houston, Texas. His work celebrates resilience and reclamation through commemorations of African-American cultural icons and is grounded in the rich continuum of African-American history and cultural expression. Hodge’s collage-based works pair urban detritus and found objects with cut-out images, lyrics, and other signifiers of the African-American experience, creating a duality of meaning in which fragments of everyday life become conduits of artistic expression. His works are often cut, sewn, scorched, and painted, collapsing the space between his reclaimed materials and the traditions he invokes, and suggesting alternative pathways through the “layer cake” of African-American history.

Hodge has exhibited his work in galleries and museums across the country and internationally, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, The Contemporary Art Museum of Houston, the Carnegie Museum, and the Blaffer Museum. The multi-media artist also recently released a theme-based record honoring and remixing music from the legendary Robert Johnson.
