Gaze 2021

Judith's practice spans a range of media and processes and is informed by her interest in science and nature, especially processes of growth, change and evolution. In our period of rapid change she is particularly interested in the effects of the collision of nature and technology.


In recent work Judith has adopted geology and the origins of life as a starting point from which to explore transformation and evolution and consider how these processes are influenced by human activities. The work includes drawing, printmaking, moving image and sculpture and refers to notions of chaos and order, mass and matter, clustering and spreading, and the merging of man-made and natural.


A Brief History of the Future brings together drawings, printmaking, found and made objects and materials shown together in a collection reminiscent of museum display.
