Val Hudson

Festival: 2017

My paintings engage with the insubstantial, transient nature of existence – expressed through colour, form, the elements, open spaces and the play of light. Abstract and landscape in form, I layer oil and wax on canvas – scraping back to create pieces contemplative, meditative and mysterious pieces.
Drawing on a wide spectrum of ideas and influences, the paintings are the starting point of a ‘conversation’ where the language is not only visual but emotive and evocative using a subtle potency of shifting illusive signs and symbols. To fully appreciate the paintings the viewer needs to stand, looking, until the internal noise quietens.
