about

Born and raised in London, Esme Hodsoll (b. 1992) first studied at Pennighen, École de Direction Artistique et Architecture Intérieure, in Paris before attending the Royal Drawing School, London where she could exclusively practice her passion: drawing. Hodsoll was awarded the Richard Ford Award, and in 2017 participated residencies at Dumfries House, Scotland and at the Prado, Madrid. Hodsoll’s practice is largely comprised of paintings and works on paper that focus on scenes of portraiture and landscape. Of particular interest to the artist are scenes that appear in the domestic or studio space. Hodsoll’s scenes breathe with life, which is reflected not only in her choice of subjects but also through her skillful hand. Her years of artistic travel leading to Scotland, Greece and Spain aided Hodsoll in her close study of light, which lends itself to embedding life and action into the artist’s renderings of landscapes, portraits, and scenes of quotidian domesticity. 

One of Hodsoll’s works is included in Ways of Drawing: Artists' Perspectives and Practices published by Thames and Hudson in October 2019. Hodsoll's first solo exhibition in Italy is scheduled for September 2021 at ALMA ZEVI Venice, where the artist completed a residency in 2020. Esme Hodsoll currently lives and works in Paris.
