Paintings of Judith Wright

I just came across the Australian artist Judith Wright. I am drawn to her interest in using the body to convey life’s journey. She often deals with the impermanence and the vulnerability of life.  She came to her art practice from a background in classical dance, having performed with the Australian Ballet for four years so as she says it is only to be expected that she conveys a performer’s sensitivity to the body.  There is something in her images, some of which are shown below, that deeply resonate with me. She seems to capture for me the  idea of the body as landscape of experience. These images were downloaed from http://www.sophiegannongallery.com.au/artists/view/49/judith-wright/work on 18th June 2012
