Welcome to the "Imaginistic" artworks of Thomas Hodges

Welcome to my official website and my world of "Imaginistic" photographic artworks. Much of my work is both conceptual and representational (often both!), and as such one needs to contemplate beyond the first impressions of the physical image. In December 2006 (whilst residing in Paris, France), and primarily to accommodate my own artistic vision, I formed the art movement "Imaginisim".

Whilst I am undoubtedly best known for my figurative photographic works, which are focused primarily on human sexuality across race and culture, I also produce works in other genre, working in all media, including oils, acrylic, mixed-media and sculpture. However, regardless of the subject matter, my principal focus is on the creation of works which I define as "Imaginistic"! Your own imagination is the primary key to your own personal interpretation of much of my work.

With this in-mind, I would like to draw your attention to the following quotations:-

"The possible's slow fuse is lit by the imagination" ~ Emily Dickinson

"You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus" ~ Mark Twain

"The eyes are not responsible when the mind does the seeing" ~ Publilius Syrus

"When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge" ~ Tuli Kupferberg

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see" ~ Henry David Thoreau

"They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night" ~ Edgar Allan Poe, "Eleonora"

Lastly, and somewhat more modestly amongst such great company:

"You perceive what you wish to perceive, there is no truth, perhaps no reality, it is for you to decide. Let your imagination be the key to your interpretation of realism. That is imaginism" ~ Thomas Hodges
