Amy Judd

Amy Judd has always been drawn to life drawing and capturing the female form. It wasn’t until after seeing Swan Lake at the Royal Opera House that her work shifted – she was captivated by Odette’s transformation to and from a swan.

The work has always drawn inspiration from women’s connection with nature, especially in folklore and mythology. Her figures are depicted in many different ‘narratives’: they can be powerful or vulnerable, seen with a sense of whimsy or smouldering sensuality, just as in traditional mythologies.

All figures are anonymous, never looking at the viewer, and have an ambiguity about them, and often physically obscured with feathers, big blooms and petals. The compositions are full of intrigue and always an attempt to make something beautiful.

The Avian and Florialia collections have a fragility and strength simultaneously, in painting them larger than life the fragile plumage and petals become sculptural, gaining a strength and abstract quality; They become beautiful helmets or masks for the statuesque women.

In the familiar paintings the viewer is allowed space to breath within the composition, there is often empathy between the figure and animal or bird, the palette is more subdued creating a quiet nostalgic atmosphere.

The work of Amy Judd is highly sought after and collected internationally. She has featured in Harpers Bazaare US and many other publications. As well as being in many prestigious London hotels, restaurants and developments. Amy’s first limited edition prints on paper released in April sold out in record time. We expect further releases later this year – to be kept informed please join our mailing list.
