Tom Hodgson was the youngest member of the iconic Painters Eleven group and one of the first in the group to paint on very large canvases. He developed a distinct and individualistic style of lyrical abstraction that by the early 1960s was well received nationwide. J. Russell Harper recognized the narrative of action in Hodgson’s canvases, commenting, “Hodgson, an Abstract Expressionist, paints the figure with a vigorous facility which has been described as reminiscent of Willem de Kooning.” Hodgson was an Olympic champion paddler, and the motions of the sport are often reflected in the brushwork of his abstract paintings. As Roald Nasgaard stated, “Hodgson became the consummate spontaneous gestural painter of the Painters Eleven, gutsy and aggressive, but finally lyrical and sensuous.” Painted a few years after the breakup of Painters Eleven, Anglican Congress, with its lush green, gestural brushwork and subtle allusion to the human form, is a fine example of Hodgson’s sensuous approach to abstraction.
