From 28th September 2015
We are pleased to be hosting this unusual and exciting exhibition by Judith Barford. Judith has produced a series of lino relief prints and collage which arose out of her interest in repeating patterns and forms found in the natural world, including inside our own bodies.The images are not intended to be accurate representations of our biology but rather an attempt to depict the inherent beauty and complexity of our inner physical world. They are all made by cutting and etching into lino. Some are collages made of prints which cut up and superimposed onto other prints. The images are printed using predominantly reds and oranges: life-blood colours.
Judith’s professional life was in social work but she has always been interested in art and went on various courses culminating in the part-time foundation course at Colchester Institute in 1995. During the course she became interested in print making and 3D work and joined Cuckoo Farm Print workshop when the course ended, continuing to work there until recently.
She has previously taken part in group exhibitions with Print Workshop colleagues at Colchester Library, The Mercury Theatre and the Benham Gallery.
