Bryce Hudson :: Contemporary Artist

Contemporary Art with Substance

Bryce Hudson is a widely exhibited and published contemporary artist living in the United States. The bulk of his work deals with social issues surrounding ideas of race, beauty, gender identity politics and stereotypes in contemporary society. The weapons in his arsenal; bold color, pattern, composition, symbolism and digital manipulation of pre-existing imagery. Hudson's esthetic is inspired by historical art movements; modernism, post-modernism, minimalism, pop, neo plasticism — yet the work itself is inspired by life in contemporary society.

Hudson works across media. Contemporary abstract geometric paintings — wherein he explores identity and race through use of color and composition; in recent work he uses architectural photographs and strips them of all context to create dizzying compositions. His digitally manipulated imagery from muscle magazines and beauties in advertising explores society’s issues of beauty. To create the Kentucky Gentleman Series he hired an entire theater staff to transform him into serious or comical versions of every race he's ever been mistaken for — then he photographed himself. He also experiments with pattern and color in ways that present similar issues in either a reductive or visually redundant fashion. Spring 2011, Hudson begins work on a series of cast glass sculptures and returns to his primary love of painting.

Experimentation and evolution are essential to the development of all contemporary artists... If I had to reduce why I am an artist down to its essence it would be that my worth is based on the ability to grow and change with my surroundings, to inspire transformation and spark dialogue and thought in others, to always be mindful of what surrounds me (abstract or concrete) and to always formulate, reinterpret and reissue information into my own unique voice.
