Visiting Artist To Give Lecture On Abstract ImageryAt University Of Virginia
November 5, 2004 --
WHO: Artist Judith Linhares
WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m.
WHERE: Campbell Hall, Room 160
Judith Linhares will give a lecture at the University of Virginia on Thursday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 160. A visiting artist in the McIntire Department of Art, she also will be critiquing U.Va. students’ paintings on Friday, Nov. 19.
Linhares’ work is inspired by personal fantasies — using an intensely colorful palette and a lively brush, she creates her own rules for painting using exaggeration. She restates the mythical roles imposed on women in legend and fairy tales, and paints distinctive females who validate her private musings while flaunting their power to reshape meaning and myth. In “Milk” and “Interpreter’s House,” her style resembles one of fantasy, which contrasts from her other floral still lifes.
The California-born artist’s work has been displayed at museums across the country, including six solo shows in New York. Her newer paintings expand upon her practice of fusing direct applications with a sophisticated handling of space and color. Linhares is represented by the Edward Thorp Gallery and the Cheryl Pelavin Gallery in New York; and the Gallery Paule Anglin in San Francisco.
