簡介

美藉藝術家Judith Murray創建了既抽象,又富情感表達的商標語言。1970年代期間的早期油畫以紅、黃、白、黑四種顏色為基礎,構成鮮明筆觸。作品的右邊印上一條實色的顏料條紋,成為日後作品的必要元素,襯托出旁邊充滿生氣躍動著的色彩,增添一份實在感。多年來,她一直忠於自己原有的顏色素材,透過混合不同的組合創出豐富,看似無限的色調。此規律使作品無形中產生穩健的風格。近年,Murray開始創作大規模的畫作,大多是以短促筆觸在畫布上爭相追逐作為構圖。在她的最新畫作中,抽象古怪、以基礎的四種顏色呈現的幾何形狀,分散於栩栩如生的筆觸之間,把多種創作元素結合為一。

Judith Murray曾於聞名的紐約鐘樓、紐約現代藝術博物館、達拉斯藝術博物館,及多間畫廊舉行個人展,當中更包括1976年於歷史悠久的貝蒂•帕森斯畫廊的作品展。她曾獲頒美國藝術暨文學學會的繪畫獎、古根漢基金會奬學金,及美國國家藝術基金會藝術獎。2009年,Murray於紐約的國家設計博物館及學院被名為國家院士。

Judith Murray的作品珍藏於眾多著名的收藏館,包括孟買的美國領事館、阿布扎比王室、美國華盛頓國會圖書館、布魯克林博物館、 夏威夷當代博物館、及紐約公共圖書館。Murray她曾三次受林肯表演藝術中心委託為每年於夏季在紐約市舉行的莫札特音樂節設計海報。她的畫作曾刊載於多本詩集。Murray是波蘭的美國國務院信息局駐場藝術家,並曾任教於幾所大學。

Neither Hats Nor Unicorns June 2012

Judith Murray’s current show at Sundaram Tagore presents a stunning departure for this boldly original painter with a significant body of work dating to the 1970s. She could be classed as a latter-day Abstract Expressionist in that her work is always abstract and also deeply expressive.

Judith Murray: Continuum April 16 - May 23, 2009

Critical Perspectives on Arts, Politics, and Culture:
Murray's radiant painting represent a case for the perceptual and the tactile, as well as for an inclusive, open-ended formalism. They look easy, and not, to make, the result of spontaneous bursts of creation as well as arduous structuring and re-structuring. Their ambiguity and darkness are overridden by a fierce optimism powered by a belief in beauty that is both canonical and dissident, idealized and lashed by intimations of mortality.

Preview: Here and Now at Sundaram Tagore Gallery March 2009

Art historian Sundaram Tagore's doctoral thesis looks at Indian artists' response to European modernisation from the 1940s to 1980s. As a curator, however, his focus is more on the here and now. Hence the title of his gallery's latest group exhibition by 18 international artists, which opens today at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery's Hong Kong branch.

Judith Murray at Sundaram Tagore October 2003

"Murray's lyrical pictures are fraught with references to an earlier, distinctly French method of building up the surface. This . . . goes a long way toward explaining their emotional charge."
