|'The ambiguity of identity' is a theme that threads through the current works from 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; thus she has been able to satisfy her current artistic requirements as the Shakespearean references form the core of her new collection.
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. 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.
The new collection ‘WITHIN THIS WOODEN O’ is currently to be viewed at Shakespeare’s Globe – the series on new works, some for sale, will form part of the Exhibition & Tour until August 12th 2012 thereafter they will be returned to collectors and Red Dot Gallery as appropriate.
Rosalind will commence a new and equally exciting project during 2012/13 – please contact Red Dot Gallery for further and future details, also to register your interest in this artist’s work.
