In reflection, Judith was a highly talented and accomplished contemporary Australian Artist – Painter, Printmaker and Script Writer. Jude actively pursued a vast array of subject matter covering many contemporary themes. Her exhibitions included ‘Melbourne Versus Sydney’- a contemporary re-tracing of the Heidelberg School Artists. ‘The Commuters’ – themes that related to public transit and inspired by the works of T.S Eliot – “what is your real destination when you arrive at the terminus”. ‘Law and Order’ – individuals in relation to the masses. ‘Bathers – Interior – Exterior’ and ‘Female Versus Male’. Other themes explored by the artist included terrorism, anarchy and ideological folly and the human condition.
Judith continued to paint up to 2019 completing many current reflections on modern life. Her bold style commanded small and large canvases. She rarely signed her work saying they will know my work.
Judith exhibited for many years and achieved success and recognition.
Her work has been acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria, the National Gallery in Canberra, Parliament House Canberra and is in private national collections and she was selected for exhibition in the Sulman & Wynne art prize at the Art Gallery of N.S.W. Judith was highly appraised by Alan McCulloch. Her body of works, paintings and etchings, are substantial and leave a significant legacy of fine art.
Judith was a Fine Art teacher at Swinburne Senior Secondary College for many years.
Judith leaves a sister of Beth Cooper, her two children Belinda and Peter and a grandson, Jack. Judith passed away peacefully.
