Artists and longtime friends Tessa Perutz and Cody Hudson excel at a variety of positions both within and outside the realm of fine art. Hudson has made a name for himself as a visual artist while simultaneously achieving widespread acclaim as an illustrator and designer within commercial fields. Perutz founded Massif Central, a company that translates works by leading contemporary painters onto silk scarves, thereby conflating the already blurred boundaries that divide works of art, functional objects and fashion. Given their multifaceted roles within creative fields that veer from the conventional, it might then seem surprising that both artists turn to painting as a primary form of expression and exploration, and more so that both artists find commonality in the ways their works excavate elemental truths of painting and it’s relevance in our increasingly busy daily lives. For both Perutz and Hudson, painting serves as a means of slowing down, of distillation and simplification with an uncanny ability to simultaneously address the specific and universal.
