Val Hudson

Festival: 2018

My paintings engage with the insubstantial, transient nature of existence as expressed through colour, form, the elements, open spaces and the play of light. I endeavour to make that which is invisible, visible and in doing so I invite us to jettison our preconceptions and bring into play, imagination. I layer oil and wax on canvas then scrape-back to create pieces that are contemplative, meditative and engage with the potential of emptiness and silence. I often start with a piece of music, a poem, a persons biography or memory of being in a landscape, from which the painting emerges.
