Henry Hudson

Henry Hudson(b. 1982. Bath, UK) is a British artist who makes paintings, sculpture, etchings and performance based work. A graduate of Central St. Martins, the London based artist’s practice is best known for his radical use of plasticine as his chosen medium. Hudson originally started using plasticine when he discovered it was an inexpensive way of achieving the thick impasto surfaces of the traditional school of oil painting he was exploring, inspired by the influences of Van Gogh and Kiefer. As he developed his practice, he soon discovered the theatrical and expressive qualities peculiar to the medium, which offered him an innovative and exciting way to develop his painterly technique, focus on materiality, and his passion for gestural expression.
