Val Hudson

Val Hudson’s oil and wax paintings engage with the insubstantial, transient nature of existence as expressed through colour and abstract 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. The energy emitted by these colourful, elemental works engages us with our present experience of witnessing. We are invited to be in the ungraspable movement of “now”. These abstract paintings, like music and dance are not static but are instead “alive” and move us from moment to moment.

This unfixable shifting nature of the paintings is part of what makes them endlessly fascinating. The paintings celebrate what it is to be alive, to be experiencing The World. They call to a part of us that we cannot name. The paintings invite us to respond.
