Hudson’s sculpture projects tend to be abstract, often geometric in one way or another. Certain projects might have more literal or figurative aspects. The stone sculptures tend to be a balance of natural aspects with human interventions. Hudson’s sculpture may be seen as iconic for the most part, or symbolic, very often referencing a center, whether actual or spatial. The sculptures often work with balance; space in contrast with form; implied space; ambiguity if incorporating mirror surfaces; light and darkness; a continuum or movement & flow such as a vortex. He thoroughly researches a given project & creates a sculpture that speaks to the pertinent characteristics of the situation, whether cultural, thematic or environmental.



I was born in Montana in 1945 & at age 6 we moved to Saudi Arabia for three years, which began my travels all round the world. Since receiving my MFA in 1972 from Cal-Arts, followed by 2 years at a CA gold mine, I have been creating large-scale sculpture projects for public environments throughout the States & in 27 countries round the world -- 24 throughout China alone.
