Delpha Hudson was born in Surrey in 1963 and moved to Cornwall in 1993. She is an alumni of Falmouth College of Art, with an MA in Visual Performance from Dartington College. She is a co-founder of a number of art collectives including Art Surgery, and Salon de Textes. She has made and shown video and performance around the country and Europe, including a commission for work at the Tate St Ives (Cornwall Art Now, 2006).
Current studio work includes painting and sculpture that is developed from performance, gesture and the body. Using objects, text and unusual media like bitumen paint to explore metaphysical fluidity, selfhood and gender. Her original degree in history from London University informs her work which plays with perceived truth, empathy and emotion. Whilst work has a poetically resonant, and aesthetically individual style, there is always a twist.
Delpha is based in Bread Street, Penzance, where you can see work by appointment. She also shows work in a variety of galleries around the country, often siting work specifically in unusual spaces.
