Henry Hudson : Pellegrino

28 Nov 2014–24 Jan 2015


TJ Boulting is delighted to invite you to Henry Hudson's third solo show with the gallery, Pellegrino, presenting plasticine works, wallpaper murals and a sculpture all conceived during a seven week residency at Villa Elia in the south of Italy, Puglia.
