Holly Hudson utilizes printmaking, sculpture, painting, metal clay and other media to explore the inextricable ways in which joy and sorrow are entwined. As a woman with disabilities and chronic pain she is well acquainted with the complex ways in which suffering can manifest and even transmute into passion. This can often be felt in her work. She finds herself trolling the depths, searching for snippets of redemption within the lens of her experience. With expressive quality of line, the allure of texture, and a love for vermilion, she surveys relationships between the biological, the symbolic, experiences of the human heart and body, and the natural world. Holly Hudson studied at Boise State University, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Pacific Northwest College of Art.
