‘The true eye of the earth is water. In our eyes it is water that dreams.’ Gaston Bachelard
The world is in chaos. We are part of a vast eco-system that has been disrupted my man himself. The balance of nature has been ripped apart by our enthusiasm for the latest and fastest fashion, food, or fad, and capitalist greed with little consideration of the consequences for the future of our planet. Species are being lost at an alarming rate due to overfishing, loss of essential habitats and the poisons we thoughtlessly pump into the bio-sphere. Petrochemical companies are using the global pandemic to increase plastic production as the demand for oil decreases. There is no justification for this. How will it end?
Judy’s work implicates all of us, utilising disposable, domestic plastic with which we are all too familiar, and uncanny found objects. She creates paintings, immersive installations, film and performance to raise questions and provoke.
