For the past three decades, Hobbs’s practice has been underpinned by three core interest areas: architecture and the built environment, art and war, and anatomy and the body. Johannesburg, his hometown has served as a critical reference point for his artistic insights into the – apartheid city turned African city – with a particular interest in the impact of defensive urban planning and architecture on the behavioural aspects of city and society. Printmaking, model making, video and photography serve as foundations for large-scale installations and commissions, simultaneously offering audiences access to a variety of editioned and serialised works. Much of this effort has been facilitated through close collaboration with David Krut Projects in South Africa and New York. Hobbs is a fellow of the Ampersand Foundation, co-director of the trans-disciplinary artists collective The Trinity Session and visiting critic at the Graduate School of Architecture, University of Johannesburg. Hobbs has had numerous solo exhibitions in South Africa and abroad, and has participated in residencies in North America, Europe, and Africa. His work can be found in public and private collections in South Africa, Europe, and the USA.
