The ambiguity of identity’ is a theme that threads through the work of this imaginative and highly stylized artist. Rosalind cites Renaissance, Tudor and Jacobean portraiture as a significant influence, while her immaculate panels are clearly contemporary with a refreshing clarity and palette.
In 2006 Rosalind gained the approval of The Globe Theatre to observe backstage, rehearsal and performance. As Artist in Residence during 2010/11 she was able to complete some fifteen panels. ‘WITHIN THIS WOODEN O’ was the resulting exhibition which was staged at The Theatre during 2012.
The National Trust invited Rosalind to exhibit a series of paintings ‘Shadows of Shakespeare’ in the highly appropriate location of The Long Gallery in Blickling Hall, Norfolk during the summer of 2010. This in turn led to the opportunity to return with a new collection which is in fact Rosalind’s current focus. Earlier in 2013 Rosalind spent many hours exploring the ‘hidden’ parts of Blickling in search of textiles, fragments and ephemera that could be incorporated into a series of small portraits. We hope to exhibit paintings inspired by this research during the coming months.
Rosalind Hudson gained a BA (Hons) Visual Arts in 1990 and in 2008 a MA in Fine Art. For some years she taught and lectured art and design before working exclusively as a professional artist.
