Amy Judd

Amy Judd, a London-based painter, takes her inspiration from traditional stories and mythologies from all around the world and woman’s intricate and enchanting relationship with nature. She does not only replace the head with that of an animal, as often depicted these days, but places the animal as a mask over the face, which may suggest they wear the personality of this creature or that they see the world through the qualities of this animal.  A reoccurring theme is the use of wings and feathers in her pieces. Above, the elegant wings are seen as feminine and sexual when linked to the woman’s body adding passion and grace to this creature. Through combining the human with the animal Judd creates a narrative that is delicate and full of passion, yet which accentuates the strength of the female form.
