Judy Boyd Lane is currently exhibiting a suite of fine sculptures and drawings at the Mosman Art Gallery.
Judy at the opening
They are inspired by a recent trip to Europe, where she was drawn to the sculptures in many museums in London and Paris. On show are a number of delicate drawings forming a flowing suite that grew from these experiences.
As is her custom Judy, who is a visual diarist, came back with many filled sketchbooks.
I shared a number of happy and fruitful years with Judy as a fellow student of Henry Cornwallis Gibbons and J Richard Ashton at the Julian Ashton Art School.
This collection of penetrating sculptural portraits reveals a draughtsman’s insight into character and an instinctive understanding of form.
The works on show are the latest examples of an artist who has been a master in many mediums, including portraiture figure drawing and painting. She is also a highly respected teacher. We rejoice in this move into exciting new territory.
The exhibition runs from 30th June till 26th August 2012
