Silver Lining Meditation

2014

About

mineral pigments, sumi, silver on canvas and linen, framed Judith Kruger collects and manipulates abstract visual information and matter from the environment. Through this process she explores ideas of space and place; the freedom derived from unknown territory in combination with the attachment to a physical location of personal importance. That tension as well as the tension between other opposing pairs is a consistent part of the dialogue of Kruger’s work, including simplicity and complexity; pristine and decay; common and exotic; intention and chance; stillness and motion; and permanence and transience. These opposing interactions inform the work conceptually and technically. Kruger utilizes Eastern and Western processes and media. Since 2001, she has immersed herself in the unique study of Nihonga, a Japanese mineral pigment painting process. Nihonga painting utilizes pigments derived from natural ingredients, minerals, shells, corals, and even semi-precious stones and then combined with a hide glue solution. This method allows for a great deal of layering, employing collage- and decollage-like painting techniques with mineral pigments, gold and silver leaf, wax, and sumi ink. The use of layering, not only emphasizes the surface finish and contrast of the materials, but also the conceptual implications of that contrast and blending of material. Her work is included in the public collections of Phipps Conservatory Center, HCI Equity, The Amsterdam in New York, Pepper Hamilton, Jefferson Hospital in Philadephia, Savannah College of Art and Design, Kiya Gallery in Tokyo, and IAM in Tokyo.
