Nate Hodge

Air Date: 
Dec 18, 2015

On some level, all art is impermanent - materials break down, paint chips away and canvases tear, but that's not usually on the forefront of the mind of the average artist. Nate Hodge is different, the process he takes in painting is one of embracing change, even if it means painting over what would seem like a complete painting. Nate Hodge builds cities, tears them down and builds them again. Take a look and see for yourself as this artist lets us peek in on his process. Aired 12/18/15.
