After the war, Hodgkinson continued his art studies at London’s Central School of Art and in Paris at La Grand Chaumiere. From 1947 he lived and worked in Paris, Florence, Rome, Madrid, Majorca, the USA, Papua New Guinea and Australia. Solo exhibitions of his paintings have been staged in London, Madrid, New York, Los Angeles and throughout Australia. His work has appeared in salons in the Musee d’Art Moderne, Paris and at London’s Tate and Whitechapel Galleries.
From 1971 Hodgkinson became intensely involved with primordial landscapes and the world’s last frontiers. He undertook many journeys to the most remote areas of Papua New Guinea and the Kakadu area of Australia’s Arnhem Land. Hodgkinson had the ability to abstract his perceptions of the world and transform them into a dazzling mosaic of visual energy. The author Morris West, in his introduction to “Hodgkinson” (Beagle Press 1994) wrote, “Frank Hodgkinson is a prodigy. He is a man so various that he hardly gives you the time to focus on any single one talent. He is a painter, a sculptor, an architect, an author, a designer of habitats and ambiences”.
