Profile: Bryce Hudson (1979-)

Bryce Hudson is a Moroccan-American Neo-plasticist (De Stijl) painter. Hudson’s early geometric paintings explore race and stereotypes through means of the Geometric abstraction style. Later in his career, influenced by the theories of Constructivism the paintings and wall sculptures referenced abstracted architectural and spatial elements. His printmaking combines movements in art history such as Minimalism and Rococo.

Along with contemporaries Pierre Clerk and Ilya Bolotowsky, Hudson works within a small set of artists working within the Neo-Plastic style – not adhering to strict rules, but exploring the depth and future of geometric abstract art.
