The Art of It: Girl in White
Judith Pond Kudlow's working method is based on the 19th-century academic tradition
Shadows spill onto a table and narrow the defiant gaze of a young girl in flowing white. An air of mystery patterns these introspective narratives, the unseen as essential as any surface detail.
A solo exhibit of still lifes, draperies, and figures in the classical tradition by Redding resident Judith Pond Kudlow will be on view December 2 through January 2016 at the Cooper & Smith Gallery in Essex. Kudlow’s working method is based on the 19th-century academic tradition that emphasizes working from life to produce paintings based on precise drawing, careful modeling to produce three-dimensional illusion, and compositions based on time-honored rules. Kudlow teaches and paints at The Harlem Studio of Art, NYK Academy.
