CANNON HUDSON
New Paintings and Sculpture


In this exhibition of new work, Cannon Hudson presents a number of large-scale monochromatic paintings and constructed sculptures which investigate the duplicity between representational and abstract imagery. Interested in the built structures that surround us, Hudson’s paintings depict domestic interiors, which in turn contain representations of paintings and sculptures. The sculptures, as if emerging from the paintings, are made of steel, wood, plexiglass, polymer coating, and chrome. The paintings construct actual and fictitious interiors as contextual setting for the sculptural work, which projects past experiences into the future by reassembling the past. The more tangible aspects of their subject matter tend to erode into simple forms that float in mercurial and reflective spaces, which might be seen as stylistic stand-ins for the original thing.

While the paintings use the interior as a starting point, the familiar often gives way to the artifice and ambiguity of fiction. In many of the works the recognizable objects and materials erode through the amorphous nature of the medium of paint. The physicality of the built world breaks down into emergent or rudimentary forms, simple nuance, shade and tone. In both the painted works as well as the sculptures, the objective references are reduced to the point that we can no longer hold on to them, evoking psychological tension and creating broader spaces for interpretation.

Cannon Hudson has had solo shows at Feature Gallery, NYC, Acme Gallery, Los Angeles, White Columns, NYC, Galleria Marabini, Bologna, Italy, Oliver Kamm Gallery, NYC, and Dennis Anderson Gallery, Los Angeles among others. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions including: “The Painted World” at PS1, NYC, “Out of Site” at the New Museum, New York, “Officina America,” Galleria d’Art Moderna, Bologna, Italy, “Mood Painting” Curt Marcus Gallery, NYC, Daniel Reich Gallery, NYC, and “Departure Lounge” the Clocktower, NYC. A recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2003, Cannon Hudson lives and works in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, California.
