Cody Hudson

From an Obama Hope poster, to public art, to paintings and sculptures, Cody’s signature style translates well in all media.  I sense inspiration from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Joan Miró and maybe even some Keith Haring. Nonetheless, it’s a style all his own, and I love it.

These paintings speak for themselves. Thoughtful use of color and light, deeply emotional paintings “like watching memories slip away”. Source

“I love having bruises that I can touch throughout the day to instigate memory. Sometimes the bruise is a broken lip; sometimes exhaustion; sometimes the way light falls on skin. Painting is touching the bruise.” – Joshua Bronaugh

Richard Pearse

“I am a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg and his ability to take items that were lying around and turn them into lush pieces of artwork. I was always very moved by how beautiful something made up of such mundane and throw away items could look when placed together with consideration.

My art is really heavily influenced by the music I’m inspired by and attempting to create. I think about music in terms of loud and quiet colors, textures and patterns, and to me a lot of these pieces are interpretations of songs or parts of songs. Songs are made up of a series of interlocking pieces that work well together and this is what I try to create with my art.”

These are the words of artist Richard Pearse. He puts a modern spin on the techniques developed by likes of Rauschenberg and pulls it off in a unique fashion. I would kill to have one of these pieces hanging in my living room.
