Art Unlimited 2018 | Jim Hodges - the narrow gate

To see the whole beauty of Jim Hodges the narrow gate, you have to look at it from two sides.
It was specially created for the artists first exhibition "turning pages in the book of love".
It consists of a room within a room, and if you look at it from one side you only see a wooden crate that is illuminated.
Already this creates a kind of mysterious atmosphere and when you walk around it and look through the crack of the wooden crate you can see a fragile glass rose tree that is surrounded by butterflies.
After the strong contrasts of darkness and light from the other side, this view seems even more delicate and precious and we love how this installation gives us the feeling that there is more to things than what you see at first sight.
