b. 1982, UK; lives and works in London
For Cure3, Henry Hudson collaborated with his ceramicist brother Richard WM Hudson. Henry makes paintings, sculpture, etchings, and performance-based work but is best recognised for his use of plasticine, creating paintings that have depth and a sculptural quality. Using this comical, childish medium, Hudson’s work explores macabre or vulnerable social stereotypes to create satirical social commentaries. His most recent body of work, also a collaboration with his brother, explored the tropical fauna of dense jungle scenes in a spectrum of colour rendered in plasticine and painted ceramics.
Hudson has had solo exhibitions in New York, London, Hong Kong, and Beijing and his work is in many international private collections. Richard Hudson (b.1980) has ceramic works in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum and has exhibited throughout Europe.
