Inspired by his series of oil on mirror paintings entitled The Night You Left, Hod bottles the recurring themes of introspection and longing contemplated in this body of work into a functional object: a set of four mirrored coasters, lined with digitally printed white powder. Decadent and eye-catching, the coasters are backed with black velvet and are housed in a sleek black box.
The Night You Left masterfully captures a heightened and ephemeral emotional state; a moment of solitude and self-revelation. It is a meditation on love and love lost, on pain and catharsis. “There is a certain magic in loneliness,” Hod explains, “you have to be alone to create.” He adds, “It’s not about drugs or glamour—it’s about the inside world, where you can dream and love and seek a greater truth—it’s about a feeling of being connected to something so human.”
