Judith Brassard Brown
Judith Brassard Brown has a Master of Fine Arts from Boston University, and is a professor of painting at Montserrat College of Art. Her work is currently shown at Kingston Gallery in Boston, and has been shown at Arden Gallery on Newbury Street.
Most of her work involves using drawing materials, oil paint, collage elements, cold wax and, in the newest work, resin on either canvas or board.
The acts of making and viewing are opportunities to heal. While paintings may appear traditional at first glance, they do not recreate a specific location or event. Rather, each provides connections across boundaries of time or a captured moment, contrasts what we see with what we sense below the surface. Their qualities may activate our capacity to connect with others and with our own buried emotions. In recognizing what is compressed, that recognition may activate a corresponding release of psychic burden and an increase in joy.
