Judy Merchant


Judy is drawn to the idea that nothing is permanent, that everything is in transition and that there is beauty in imperfection.

She is inspired by marks evidencing the passing of time in the ageing urban environment and the changing seasons, such as ageing walls and fallen leaves. She loves the textures that seem to hold that sense of history and mystery. Her work echoes that process of change as she works in layers which conceal and reveal what went before.

She uses fabric, paint, gesso and machine stitch to create a surface which constantly changes,  incorporating unexpected and accidental events. Her work is mainly abstract and she works on a small and large scale.
