Biography

British sculptor Richard Hudson was born in 1957 in Yorkshire, UK; he lives and works in Madrid. He began working with sculpture at a relatively late age after many years of travel. He has been focusing his work on the female figure but has of late worked with an abstract expression. His soft lines and voluptuous, nearly bombastic style combined with inspiration from Modernism’s great names like Henry Moore, Jean Arp and Constantin Brancusi rocketed his career forward.

“Whilst Brancusi, Arp or Moore inspire a great part of his sculptural work closer to the occidental tradition, the artist still allows space for the free interpretation of Duchamp’s or Warhol’s countersigns. Endowed with an incredible intuition and ability, sensual, ironic, unembarrassed..., surreal with a dadaisti touches and the heart of a great romantic, Richard Hudson has, with no doubt a large sculptural imagination.” – Pilar Ribal – Simo January 2004 , Art Critic

“Richard Hudson is an artist with a constant investigative tension. After exploring various paths in the sculptural field, he has arrived with work ,that is bursting with a mature energy.” – Luis Maria Caruncho , From the Spanish and international Art Critics

“Hudson's direct engagement with his materials, the smooth highly polished surfaces, and the need to simplify, and reduce his forms to the emblematic, remind one of the work of Romanian Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), also like Dada artist Jean Arp (1887-1966) he combines the elemental with a surreal humour ."
Lynne Green - Member the British Arts Council

"The daring and ingenuity of Hudson's sculpted forms engage and delight us. Gravity-defying 'drawings in space' are the result" - Lynne Green- Member the British Arts Council
