BAY AREA ARTISTS:
Bay Area artist Sharon Hudson's contemporary fine art works in painting, collage, pastel, drawing, and mixed media are sensual, colorful, and dynamic. Her wide-ranging art includes figure drawings and paintings, abstract paintings and collages, still lifes, mosaics, relief sculpture and assemblage, and fine art photography.
Abstract landscape painting.
Strong compositions and bold color are characteristic of Hudson's art. A long-time San Francisco Bay Area resident, her stylistic inspiration comes from her extensive travels, as well as from masters of sensuality like Gauguin, Klimt, Matisse, Degas, and Van Gogh, and crafts like stained glass and quilt-making.
Contemporary still life painting.
Hudson's figures are characterized by frank sensuality and self-assurance. Her figure paintings, drawings, and collages always begin with live models. She starts with media that are swift and sensual, and works quickly to capture the model's body, face, expression, or mood. She may leave this spontaneous portrayal as the completed work of art, or she may work the figure drawing into a painting or collage energized with patterns.
Contemporary figure painting.
Hudson's abstract (non-objective or non-representational) collages are unique in contemporary art. These collages reflect her love of color, texture, pattern, and ambiguous space. Her study of Japanese textiles and her photography, using multiple exposures and superimposed images, led her to overlay and mix patterns in her art as well. She focuses on the interplay of two and three dimensions, and the dynamic movement of reflective surfaces.
Abstract painting and collage with patterns.
In addition to this collection of figure collage, this art gallery also offers other figures, abstracts, still lifes, portraits, decorative non-objective patterns, and other kinds of art. Bold, sensual, intriguing fine art in painting, collage, pastel, drawing, and mixed media. San Francisco Bay area visual artist Sharon Hudson, Oakland, northern California.
