Sculptor Richard Hudson was born in 1954 in Yorkshire, England. A prolific artist, Hudson creates partially abstracted re-inventions of familiar sculptural tropes. Hudson’s hands-on relationship with his diverse materials – most often marble, wood, steel or bronze – produces organic, polished work that is at once timeless and contemporary. Exploring the canon of Western sculpture and changing approaches to beauty, Hudson’s smooth and sensual sculptures concern not only the fields of art and art history but also psychology, anthropology and philosophy. Hudson’s sculptures, which range in size from miniature to monumental, employ exaggeration and even humor to veil underlying essences of form and beauty.
