Henry Hudson

Henry Hudson b.1982 from England uses different media such as plasticine, human hair, tea and wine to explore moral and social decay in Britain with a touch of comedy and satire. Hudson is strongly influenced by William Hogarth and uses the language and works of the great satirist to make his own contemporary statement. The character by Hogarth is replaced by Hudson’s own self portrait, a warning to his future self about the potentially damaging life of excessive fame and fortune. The result is amusing, provocative and unique. The plasticine, applied to the board with fingers or palette knives, produces a raw texture reminiscent of Van Gogh.
