Judith's recent body of work relates to her 2 last journeys to Cornwall. In October, she was awarded a 2 week residency at Brisons Veor in Cape Cornwall where she was involved in large scale collaborative work as well as making her own paintings. "It was an incredible opportunity to have a seafront studio but I preferred to spend the days working on the beach using the sand, seaweed and the large stones as part of the work."
Judith went on to develop this work back in her Wimbledon studio, using metal powders and gravels, creating textures and bringing a physical quality to the paintings. She rusted the metal powders on the canvas, which incorporates her urban surroundings on an industrial estate. Judith's aim is to make the viewer feel as though they are part of a landscape rather than looking at a particular view. The theme of the large round pebbles on the beach in Cott Valley continue to provide a source of energy in the work.
In addition, Judith continues to draw from the figure, trying to keep the energy and essence of the pose. “These figures are not the hour long slog pursued in the academic life class, but have the feeling of imminent change and therefore truly ‘life’.” (Frank Low, Art Critic)
Judith has also built a collection of digital paintings using an iPad which are available as high quality prints. Her iPad allows Judith to use layers to experiment with the figure and landscape as one. Changing these layers has exciting possibilities and produces different colour and texture combinations. "Keeping the energy fresh is always my priority."
Judith is happy to accept commissions.
