Judy: My practice relies on a vocabulary of archetypal shape and the resonance and repetition found in poetry and music. I work slowly and in solitude, allowing the pieces to evolve and change through processes of destruction and re-creation. Most importantly, the work is grounded by the phenomenological idea that the sense of touch is the most effective way to connect emotionally with others.
