This piece is recognised as a prime example of Hoda’s early work which is characterized by masses of deformed figurative forms composed as a challenge to the viewers' subconscious. Hoda’s mixture of materials including bronze, zinc, steel, and copper fuse together creating a heavily textured evolving form. This piece entices the viewer to move around the sculpture and evokes an immersive viewing experience. Much of Hoda’s later work is dominated by subversive and fetishistic themes created from his signature materials of latex and rubber. Underneath Hoda’s veil of sexual implication lies his persistent mission to subvert the conventional notion of classical sculpture.
This particular style of work by the artist rarely arrives on the auction marketplace, making it an attractive piece for any collector of Hoda’s work. Alex Hoda was born in 1980 and was educated at the Wimbledon College of Art and Goldsmiths College. In 2008 Hoda graduated from the Royal Academy Schools in London where he currently lives and works.
