HENRY HUDSON & STELLA VINEHENRY HUDSON & STELLA VINE “THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE DAMNED”
HAPPENINGText: Sayaka Hirakawa
This kind of feeling is seems to be based in her works. Likening Moss to Shakespeare’s tragic heroine Ophelia shows her sympathy. Using heavy impasto paint and bright colors looks somehow unbalanced, teenage. That’s why perhaps; her works remained me of ‘virgin suicide’ by Sofia Coppola.
On the other hand Henry Hudson draws celebrity culture where reputations are made and lost overnight. He uses mixed media including painting, drawing and collage to present current affairs like bird flu and the royal family. He made them very disgraced and gross figures. I really feel ill with these grotesque and shocking pieces, beloved in British art world.
