Val Hudson

Contemplative, poetic, elemental, abstract paintings. Drawing on a wide spectrum of ideas, Val layers oil and wax on canvas, scratching back, revealing what lies beneath.

Val Hudson’s paintings engage with the insubstantial, transient nature of existence as expressed through colour and form, the elements, open spaces and the play of light. Abstract and landscape in form, Val layers oil and wax on canvas then scrapes-back to create pieces that are contemplative, meditative and mysterious.They are textural, intimate, paradoxical and poetic and engage with the potential of emptiness and silence.
Val is a painter drawing on a wide spectrum of ideas and influences. Her paintings present a dreamlike quality of ephemeral spaces punctuated with half seen evocations of memory, experience and sensory imaginings. The content of her paintings are the starting point of a conversation with the viewer where the language is not just visual but emotive and evocative with a subtle potency of shifting illusive signs and symbols. To fully appreciate Val’s painting, one needs to stand in front of one until the internal noise quietens.
