Claridge's ArtSpace

This season, Claridge’s ArtSpace presents three British artists – all members of the same family – as they show together for the very first time. THE HUDSONS, Family Ties features works by the acclaimed Richard Hudson, and his sons, Henry Hudson and Richard WM Hudson.

The exhibition has been curated by the inimitable Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst, a well-known face in London’s gallery scene. It centres on the smooth, sensual sculptures of Richard Hudson, who draws on themes from art history, psychology, anthropology and philosophy to re-invent familiar sculptural tropes. His shimmering ‘Tear’ brings a feeling of flux to the timeless Claridge’s lobby, while other abstract works are shown alongside pieces by his sons in Claridge’s ArtSpace.

The elder of the two, Richard WM Hudson, works in mixed media, combining ceramics, wood, stone and photography to examine the power of nature and the emergence of new growth. Henry Hudson has garnered a reputation for his plasticine-sculpted paintings – richly coloured, textured takes on dream-like worlds. THE HUDSONS, Family Ties will run in Claridge’s ArtSpace on Brook’s Mews from 31 January until 14 April, and is open to all.
