Frances Hodgkins - Auckland Art Gallery. There's something about FH's way with light and shadow, that is abstract, suggestive, yet carries such weight of meaning.

Frances Hodgkins' letter to Isabel Hodgkins featuring the Black Devil, her cat   7 May 1892

Frances Hodgkins' letter to Isabel Hodgkins featuring the Black Devil, her cat 7 May 1892

Frances Hodgkins (NZ 1869–1947), Self portrait: still life, o/cardboard, ca 1935. In later life Hodgkins felt uncomfortable being photographed, partly because she was an older woman in a young Modernist market. Never painting a traditional self-portrait, she created highly individual, semi-abstracted groups of favorite objects: scarves, shoes, jewelry and flowers, providing what today seems like a Post-modern metaphor for the self. This strategy of self-depiction was unusual for the period.
