Jennifer Hudson grew up in a spiritual and conservative home in rural Texas where she cultivated her curiosity and imagination. Experimenting with her artwork by offering insight and awareness about intensely personal experiences, she developed delicate inventions. These creations carefully allow environments and characters in her works to speak deeply about the human experience. Baptism is a body of work that explores a young woman's spiritual reincarnation. Hudson states: We bear witness to her heartfelt journey of guilt and transgression Hudson's ability to plumb the utilization of the forgotten, discarded and mechanical is soulful, eerie, and quiet. Through careful posing and placement of her subject, her work connects with the subconscious in subtle and sometimes disturbing ways.
