With powerful, confident gestures, Judy Ledgerwood fills her large-scale canvases with rows of elements, such as circles and loops. Her formal vocabulary is full of strong references to ornamental and crafts traditions. Hence, her large paintings are done in pastel tones or splendidly decorative color combinations of exotic robes, such as gold and turquoise. In addition, the artist paints wet-upon-wet, apparently allowing the colors to randomly flow together. These subversive breaches have a highly sensory, palpable effect - they are masterful paintings whose spectacular influence is inescapable. This book is edited by Christa Haeusler and Wolfgang Haeusler, with texts by Philip Vanderhyden, Roland Waespe, and a conversation with the artist by Susanne Ghez.
