“I like to have a ready made composition to work from so most of my paintings are based on accidental arrangements of objects from everyday life; signs in shop windows, piles of old books in a flea market, furniture left on the street. I hope to bring out the individual character of the subject, what first attracted me to it. This can result in something entirely figurative or the emphasis could be on the more abstract qualities of things. A lot of the subjects I choose are transitory and have a feeling of impermanence.” – Mandy Hudson, August 2013
