Richard Hudson is an acclaimed contemporary sculptor whose monumental and smaller scale works have achieved global recognition. Hudson pares down (at times, to abstraction) iconic shapes such as the heart, teardrop, and human form, leaving only the essence of meaning. Traditional ideals of balance and harmony are sculpted in hard steel yet retain softness in elongated lines and curves. While many artists cite inspiration from masters such as Constantin Brancusi and Henry Moore, Hudson’s work moves beyond this lineage to innovate forms through process and materials. Based in a quest for classical beauty, the works open up a distinctly contemporary dialogue between the viewer and changing forms of (urban) landscape to probe a deeper investigation into the human psyche. It is for this reason that Hudson’s work is placed in distinguished private collections and in landmark public spaces in London, New York, and Dubai.

Banks’ Florilegium consists of 738 prints from the original copper plate etchings of 1771 - 1774.
Newly discovered botanical species by Sir Banks drawn in life-size by the artist Parkinson form this collection that marries art, science, exploration, and philosophy. Printed 222 years after their original designs which were created aboard Captain Cook’s vessel H.M.S. Endeavour, Banks’ Florilegium is a remarkable illumination of the enlightenment virtues of truth, nature, and the relentless pursuit of knowledge.
