About this work of Art
Judith Brenner Merlot 90 x120cm. Mixed Media on Watercolour Paper unframed £3000
Inspired by a residency in Umbria.
My work uses the notion of alchemy, a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination, in order to respond visually to my environment and life experiences. My paintings are concerned with translating the power of my surroundings through a transmutation of material through process. Empowered by the temporal nature of the raw material terrain, the paintings evolve continuously – my use of rusting metal powders allows my 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.
