Geraldine Hudson

 
b. 1974 England
lived in Stockholm since 2010

EDUCATION
2004 - 2006   M.A Printmaking, Bradford School of Art (Bradford University)
1994-1997     B.A (hons) Ceramics, U.W.E Bristol

My practice is intrinsically bound to the discourse around constructs of power, myth and reality.

Working with visual signifiers and props, which tap into a collective unconscious memory,
I attempt to raise questions regarding authenticity, concepts of origin and cultural norms.
