Creating polished works from marble, wood, steel, and bronze, Richard Hudson reinvents familiar sculptural tropes and addresses the evolving notion of beauty. A childhood steeped in nature left Hudson with an appreciation for organic forms, and so his sculptures are marked by fluid, pared-down human forms, also inspired by artists such as Henry Moore, Jean Arp, and Constantin Brancusi. Exploring and evaluating Western sculpture, Hudson puts a modern twist on beauty with surrealist forms that are simultaneously abstract and referential. Hudson believes that concepts of beauty are a reflection of the human condition, and are etched into the human psyche. Using a range of materials in a hands-on process and traditional techniques, Hudson’s sculptures are at once totemic and fetishistic, phallic and feminine, addressing ideas of money, power, and sexuality.
