Jennifer Hudson grew up in a spiritual and conservative home in rural Texas where she cultivated her curiosity and imagination. Experimenting with her artwork by offering insight and awareness about intensely personal experiences, she developed delicate “inventions”. These creations carefully allow environments and characters in her works to speak deeply about the human experience.
Baptism is a body of work that explores a young woman’s spiritual reincarnation. Hudson states: “We bear witness to her heartfelt journey of guilt and transgression …” Hudson’s ability to plumb the utilization of the forgotten, discarded and mechanical … is soulful, eerie, and quiet. Through careful posing and placement of her subject, her work connects with the subconscious in subtle and sometimes disturbing ways.
Forrest Old, Owner, says Red Filter Gallery has an approach that differs from most photography galleries, “for good economic reasons most city based galleries focus on vintage and “name brand” established photographers while doing their best to support emerging contemporary photographers in group shows or an occasional solo show. We have picked Lambertville, NJ as an arts community base with an affordable cost structure. This novel approach to the new realities of gallery presentation makes possible the presentation of an exciting show like Baptism”.
