In this clip we view an animation style work inspired by physics. I enjoy the motion of the overall piece. The artist works with both oils and gouache. The gouache works are my favorite as she plays with the transparency of the medium. Though there is a lot of motion in her work, because its based on actual items that exist in real life, her art seems very organized when compared to another abstract artist such as Jackson Pollack:

Looking at the work of Carter Hodgkin reminds me of hundreds of hours I spent playing with my grandparent’s Spirograph kit! Thank goodness video games didn’t exist back in those days!

Hodkin is a very abstract modern artist in that she uses the latest technology in creating her work. Most works are a blend of gouache,watercolor, and inkjet print on paper.
