Hodge-Kerr is a collaboration between Houston-based artist and impresario Robert Hodge and Austin-based musician and artist Tim Kerr. Individually, their work is steeped in the rich history between music and pop culture, and they share a deep interest in racial equality and human rights. With mutual admiration and converging interests, from color palette to messaging to medium, they have come together to entwine a creative vision. Hodge brings his musically inspired collage work using screenprinting, stencils, stitching and record covers to survey the jazz landscape and southern hip hop culture. Kerr translates his musical history and voice in the early days of punk and DIY, to the blues, free jazz and sounds of Irish folk music into portraits, political messaging, and vibrant colors. Musical voices are thereby lavishly layered in historical context, creating a visible synergy far beyond the sum of its parts.
