b. 1953 , Easton , PA
Mary Judge is known for her complex and reductive works on paper, sculpture in cast concrete, and painting in tempera acrylic. Her artistic development has been deeply affected by her frequent travels to Italy, where she built a deep relationship with contemporary Italian art and local artisans of the Umbria region.
Her postminimal work is process driven often utilizing non-traditional techniques. While her work is formally organized it is also sensual, and suggests hidden geometries resulting from the indirect processes she utilizes such as her unique “polvero” (meaning ‘dust’ in Italian) drawings, based on a technique used to transfers detailed drawings to the surface of traditional Italian ceramics.cv statement
