In order to keep my creative tank chugging along I like to fill it with all sorts of visual fuel. This "Tuesday's Artist" thing is my way of sharing some of the artists that inspire and delight me. I asked them to do a little finish-this-sentence sort of mini-interview so we might get to know them a little better.
This week's spotlight is shining on Judy Kaufmann. Born in Chili, she now lives and works in beautiful Barcelona. I'm a sucker for repetition and adherence to traditional rules of design, which she uber-utilizes in many of her works. But I'm especially taken with her highly stylized and deceptively simple portraits of pop culture icons. She manages to capture not only the likeness and personality of her subject but also to interject her own personal style, and with such restraint! And yet, her work manages to somehow be both restrained and spontaneous. How cool is that??
If I wasn't an artist maybe I'd be a psychologist.
I'm really good at sleeping.
I'd like to be better at math.
When I was a kid I was a non-stop moving girl.
My workspace is comfortable & colorful.
my boyfriend singing!
Right now, I'm really into my bed! (It's Sunday!)
I hope that my art will feed me for the rest of my life.
