NYC-based Australian-American multidisciplinary artist and muralist Charlie Hudson has been exploring the city by foot over this past year. Inspired by these walks, he has crafted an extraordinary range of geometric artworks on wood. With their seductive colors, alluring patterns and tantalizing textures, they are at once gritty and elegant. Several works captured on our recent visit to Charlie’s solo exhibition, Points of Distraction, at Ki Smith Gallery follow:
Elevated Trains, 2021, Acrylic and oil on wood, 38 x 6 x 4 in.
Subway Over Bridge, 2021, Acrylic and oil on wood, 19 x 51 x 3.5 in.
Vanishing Point, 2021, Acrylic and oil on wood, 22 x 15 x 3 in.
Orange Mist, 2021, Acrylic and oil on wood, 14 x 14 x 3 in.
Sun Spot, 2021, Acrylic and oil on wood, 52 x 27 x 3 in.
