Judith I Bridgland
Judith was born in 1962 in Australia, and trained in Glasgow, Scotland where she now lives and works.
Her bold, exuberant and vibrantly joyful landscapes have led to sell-out shows in Scotland, London and throughout the UK, as well as exhibiting further afield in America, Russia, Sweden and Italy.
Working in oils, her paintings use bold, vigorous, rhythmical strokes of impasto paint combined with delicate brushwork. This gives an exciting texture to the paint surface along with a sense of abstraction, which reflects nature’s contrasts and delicate harmonies. However, whilst the work is very painterly, it also has a strong sense of place.
Winner of the 1999 MacRoberts Open Prize, the 2009 House for An Art Lover Award, and the Glasgow Art Club Award in 2016, her work can be found in the collections of The Royal Bank of Scotland, British Midland, The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Caledonian University, and privately worldwide.
