Robert Hudson - Artists - Paul Thiebaud Gallery

A leading figure in American sculpture for the last 50 years, Robert Hudson combines welded steel, found objects, and brightly painted surfaces to create complex forms that dazzle and confound the eye. Graham Beal, in his essay, Welded Irony: The Sculpture of Robert Hudson, for the artist’s 1985 retrospective at SFMOMA, wrote, “Each work asserts, somehow, the pleasure of forms, objects, textures, colors, and, by implication, the glory of the many varied things around us.” Nearly years later, Hudson’s sculptures continue to boldly deploy this aesthetic and attitude. In addition to the colors found inherently in the raw elements that go into his work, Hudson often adds his trademark of bright, primary colors to many areas of the work. In doing so, the artist simultaneously highlights the areas the paint is applied to while also visually dissolving their three-dimensional forms so that they continually interchange between two- and three-dimensions within the viewer’s perception. Through the delicate balance of movement and containment created the arrangement of his elements, and the interplay of form, void, and illusion, Hudson has created signature works since the start of his career.

 

Robert Hudson grew up in Richland, Washington, and received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1963. Recognized for his talent while still a graduate student, Hudson, along with his contemporaries, Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest, William T. Wiley, and others, was included in Peter Selz’ historic exhibition, FUNK, at the Berkeley Art Museum in 1967. Hudson’s polychrome steel sculptures, ceramic sculptures, and paintings are in major museums and collections throughout the United States and Europe, including The Museum of Modern Art, NYC; Whitney Museum of American Art; SFMOMA; National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
