Judith North is an abstract painter. She is interested in
exploring the interplay between memory and perception. Her work is focused on
creating work that encourages the viewer's imagination, while avoiding
figurative references. She approaches her work instinctively. By dislocating
herself from her conscious thoughts, she aims to allow her paintings to take on
a life of their own.
Drawing inspiration from everyday experiences, she seeks
to recreate in her paintings, memories from deep within her subconscious. Her abstract
paintings are created using thin layers of paint, overpainting and obliterating
as she works, resulting in a visible history within the final piece.
In Judith’s painting process, she aims to draw a parallel
between the process of creating a painting and the processes of thought and
memory as we strive to find and recall our own memories. Just as the history of
her paintings can be seen, our own memories are shaped by the layers of
experiences that build over time.
Judith North (born Bristol, England) lives and works in South West London. She studied Fine Art at the Sir John Cass School of Art, London Metropolitan University having originally studied Mathematics and Art History at London University.
