Hodgins graduated with an Arts and Crafts Certificate, followed by a National Diploma of Design, both from Goldsmiths College in London. He lived and worked in Midrand, Johannesburg, having emigrated to South Africa in 1938.

These works were produced at The Artists’ Press, run by Mark Attwood in White River, and were influenced by Hodgins’s Second World War experiences in Egypt, from 1941 to 1944, where he was in active service of the South African army.

"For me, it is very simple. The act of painting at a particular moment is able, for reasons I neither understand, nor even try to understand, to open up the whole world of my experience, my thinking, my aspirations."
