About the Artist
Judy Gittelsohn is a painter and print maker living in Northern California. Her artworks are collected around the globe by individuals and by corporations. www.judyg.com

Gittelsohn’s work is accessible and open to abstract interpretation. Recognizable forms and shapes are translated. Her paintings evolve through many applications of paint – the surface sometimes obliterating, sometimes offering a glimpse of previous thought and direction. The shapes are solidly geometric, with heightened focus on the edges - “where the unseen touches”.
Judy is a Golden Paints Certified Working Artist. Golden is an American Company dedicated to making top quality paint for professional artists. She educates artists about the vast variety of Golden products and their uses.

Judy has worked steadily in the community bringing art to at risk youth, people with disabilities and to the general public. It is in her make up to support and encourage all her students and artists to better their art vocabulary and their enjoyment of art. Judy owned an art studio Art For Well Beings, for 7 years serving people with developmental disabilities. Now, Judy works in the community applying all the tools, curriculum and approaches she has developed.

The stories and the emotions of these forms absorb me.

The stories and the emotions of these forms absorb me.

With paint, these objects are built of dimensional shapes, waves and transparent sweeps. I focus on the continuum and the interruption of the application of color. These turns and twists develop their nature. My objects do not have to stand or support. They can float and fly and disappear and reveal and take us where physics cannot.
