About the Artwork
The work is pure and elegant with its references to Modernism and Minimalism, but it is neither utopian nor realist. The work is humorous raw, self-deprecating (about structure while hiding its own), and unnerving. It is simultaneously grand, absurd and moving.
Using simple line drawings, to create hollow linear sculptures with out a definitive mass.
On first view his sculptures present fascinating independent forms and at the second view well-known schematics, for instance the profiles of faces. Hosking develops his language of forms by the repetitive, varying fusion of Identical motives into one single great shape. In that way he succeeds to place his works exactly at the cutting point of freeform and unconscious recognition in perfect balance.
