Wolf artwork by Dan Hudson

Dan Hudson

I think of my art as a form of visual anthropology. It traverses scientific research, documentary practices, cultural history and personal journal. I maintain a project-based studio practice that includes painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation.

Many of my art projects develop through self-prescribed sets of actions. These actions become integrated into my life as rituals. It is a way to contemplate and quantify the world around me. For example, some recent projects involved filming the exact same location once a week for a year as a way to witness and document the transformations in the landscape caused by the Earth’s planetary movements through space.

I try to formulate procedures that generate collisions between my daily life and the metaphysical underpinnings of reality as understood through physics and philosophy. The resulting artworks are artifacts of these processes.
