Trained in both Art and Psychology, Gita Hudson is the current Program Officer at DakshinChitra – the heritage museum in Chennai. Active in the contemporary art scene since the early 1990s, both as an artist and a curator, Gita Hudson is also a film-maker who has made 23 documentary films on art and legendary artists, all of which have been screened widely in India and abroad. Her art, usually abstract in nature, tends to take on different adaptations of the style, taking viewers through narratives that traverse different timelines.
Exposed to different cultures from a very young age and highly influenced by temple architecture and textures of India, her paintings are semi-abstract with the suggestion of a female form, musical instruments or some combination of these elements. They simultaneously explore colour, texture, line and form, not as juxtapositions or layers but as elements integral to one another.
