Whether he is exhibiting a fragile robin's egg and nest made of glass as he did recently at Stephen Friedman Gallery in London, or a spider's web made of tiny jeweler's chain, Jim Hodges' approach is to let the material somehow begin to tell the story. He is represented in major collections such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Dallas Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim Museum, to name a few. He exhibits widely in the US at such venues as CRG Gallery NYC; Anthony Meier Fine Arts, San Francisco; Marc Foxx, Los Angeles; Interim Art, London; Galerie Ghislaine Hussenot, Paris; and Camargo Vilaca, Sao Paulo, among others. He is the recipient of the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation Award from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award.
