About

 

Laura Hudson was born in Darlington and lives & works in London. A graduate of Glasgow School of Art’s Environmental Art department, Hudson went on to study artist moving image at Central St. Martins. Her early work took the form of public interventions, site-specific works and expanded cinema with a distinctly queer-feminist agenda, which led into a career specialising in political avant-garde film and new technologies. She worked for a range of organisations including; Women in Profile, London Filmmakers Co-op (Lux), Cinenova Feminist Film Distribution, Arts Council England (Broadcast & New Media) and FluxIT Digital Agency. In 2004 food security activism took her away from the city to work on the preservation of edible seeds on a Cevenol farm in France. Returning to the UK in 2012, initially based in the South West she moved to London in 2016. Laura’s practice spans drawing, painting, sound, sculpture, film, text and installation, with a current focus on painting and drawing.
