Bryce Hudson’s paintings are as notable for their nuance and sophistication as they are for their compositional drama. His geometric oil and acrylic on canvas paintings can be described as having a certain movement and three-dimensionality while retaining a reductive quality that is general to geometric abstraction.
The hard-edged forms are bordered by bright bands of contrasting color of varying angle and width producing multiple fields of form and color that play against one another.
Using a strict geometric language, limited palette and consistent yet sophisticated compositional format, Hudson achieves a remarkable diversity within a narrow framework. Architectural elements are Hudson’s muse – flipping and dissecting elements, transforming them into a dizzying array of colors and shapes until context is lost.
The surprisingly bright color bands provide a rich contrast to the somber predominant blacks, grays and whites, and add weight and movement to the paintings.
