Bryce Hudson (March 29, 1979, Rabat, Morocco – Present, Louisville, Kentucky) is a Moroccan-American Neo-plasticist (De Stijl) painter. Hudson's early geometric paintings explore race and stereotypes through means of the Geometric abstraction style. Later in his career, influenced by the theories of Constructivism the paintings and wall sculptures referenced abstracted architectural and spatial elements. His printmaking combines movements in art history such as Minimalism and Rococo.
Along with contemporaries Pierre Clerk and Ilya Bolotowsky, Hudson works within a small set of artist working within the Neo-Plastic style - not adhering to strict rules, but exploring the depth and future of geometric abstract art.
Bryce Hudson was born in Rabat, Morocco and adopted into an American family as an infant. He studied painting, psychology and sculpture Kent State University School of Fine Art. In a 1999 exhibit at the Speed Museum he explored mixed-race and psychological influences of race and identity in contemporary society.
