Judith Geher

October 14 - November 7


JUDITH GEHER's latest body of work explores the quest for a personal identity in a world dominated by mediated images of "an idealized feminine aesthetic". Geher's contemporary figure paintings are charged with a seductive and boldly romantic quality "fraught with longing and desire" while maintaining a modestly winsome manner. This gesture could also be seen in her painterly process. While some areas are built up with mounds of colour and paint other parts are left bare to allow the natural background to show through.
