Judith’s work uses the notion of alchemy, a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination, in order to respond visually to her environment and life experiences. Her paintings are concerned with translating the power of her surroundings through a transmutation of material through process. Empowered by the temporal nature of the raw material terrain, the paintings evolve continuously – her use of rusting metal powders allows her paintings to mirror the ebb and flow of the dynamic landscape.
‘My paintings evolve and shift as I have limited control over the chemical reaction that occurs. The changes are subtle, not monumental but my reaction to them in paint is what determines the outcome.’ ~JB
She has learnt from collaborating with a number of her contemporaries in both London and Cornwall, new processes combining pigments and metals in her continuing search for new experimental ways to create challenging surfaces.
Judith is happy to accept commissions.
