More about the artist:Mary Judge lives and works in both New York and St. Louis. At its core, Judge's art can be viewed as an image of an image of time. This subtle but distinct splitting, whether consciously intended or not, would seem to account for its singular urgency. The humanist ideal that originated with the Renaissance is such a manifestly irreducible component of her aesthetic bloodline that it all but insists upon acknowledgment if she is to maintain the integrity of her work and assert the totality of her thinking.
Mary Judge's work is included in these and other museums and collections: The Fogg Museum at Harvard University (Cambridge, Mass.); The British Museum (London, England); The Victoria and Albert Museum (London, England); The Philadelphia Museum of Art (Philadelphia, Penn.); The Allen Memorial Museum of Art (Oberlin, Ohio); The Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.); and The Palmer Museum at Pennsylvania State University (University Park, Penn.).
