Judy Munro's paintings, direct and intuitive, are bold, rich and beautifully textured explorations of the emotive qualities of color and light.
"My paintings are a combination of observation, imagination and memory fragments”, bits and pieces of sights, sounds, smells and feelings experienced and remembered, a myriad of lasting impressions now translated, alla prima, into paint on a surface.
She is drawn to the way the real and the abstract merge in the landscape. Lines and edges are lost and found, horizontal and vertical grids dissolve into flowing color and then restructure, foreground and background shift and deep space becomes flat plane. At some point, the paint itself, it’s texture, color and form takes on a life of its own, becoming an equal partner in the landscape statement.
