Mary Judge
Spiral Form Four A, Geometric Spirograph Drawing in Reddish Brown on Cream Paper

2007

$3,000

About

This geometric drawing has a beautiful, soft mottled texture created with Judge's unique powered pigment technique. The ordered symmetry of the spirograph drawing in reddish brown is powerful and elegant on the creamy off-white paper. Price shown is the unframed price. Please inquire with the gallery for framing costs. The powdered pigment drawings on paper were made by laying perforated stencils on rag paper and pouncing the stencils with a sack of powdered pigment. Pigment passes through the perforations, leaving patterns, creating the composition. The technique the artist developed is based on the Italian process spolvero (meaning “dust”) that was used by Renaissance artists to transfer drawings to the wall for fresco painting. Each stencil is made by tracing a single symmetrical form numerous times. By working in series, Mary Judge is able to develop a form and continue mining its rich variations. Mary Judge's work explores the diagrammatic, the topological, the three-dimensional aspects of the drawing both through a linear-planar and tonal atmospheric representation of form, as a way of exploring what seems like a lost territory between image and object. Archival notes: The drawings are made with archival powdered pigment on Somerset 100% cotton rag printing paper and fixed with matte fixative.
