Painting from the human figure for many years, Sharon Hudson's figure art includes abstract figure paintings with bold line and flat color; abstract Cubistic figures; sensual decorative figures with lively patterns; sensual expressionistic painterly figure drawings in pastel, pencil, and charcoal; playful figures embedded in decorative patterns; and sensitive realistic figures and portraits in drawing and painting.
Abstract or realistic, Hudson's figure art always begins with live human models. Whether attracted by color, form, movement, or expression, the artist uses media that are swift and sensual, and works quickly to capture the figure. This spontaneous portrayal may complete the drawing or painting, or she may work the subject into a complex visual composition, often playful, energized with collage and decorative patterns.
Hudson's art reflects her travels of the past three decades. She has incorporated many interpretations of the human figure, from Japanese ukiyo-e prints, to abstract African sculpture, and sensual Hindu voluptuousness, as well as Western artists who have painted human figures in an abstract way, such as Gauguin, Matisse, and Picasso.
In addition to these abstract human figure paintings and drawings, this contemporary art gallery also offers realistic and decorative 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, Berkeley and Oakland, northern California.
