An Interview with Judith Peck.
Who and where are you from?
I was born in the US in Brooklyn NY, grew up in New Jersey and have spent my whole adult life in and around Washington DC. I consider myself an allegorical figurative artist.
What brought you to Art?
I have always been an artist.
What is your driving force?
I feel I have something to say and I feel that art gives me that voice.
What kind of work you do and why?
I am a painter-I think I have an affinity for paint and deep empathy for humanity.
Tell us more about your thought process.
I work all different ways, from jumping into a painting just knowing how a small piece of the work will be and then figuring out where it’s going- to seeing it all finished in my head and carrying it forward. I love the creative process, burying or erasing parts of a painting, building other parts up and discovering magic. I enjoy the struggle of creation.
Please share with us the one modern artist whose work you find Interesting and why?
I am in awe of Odd Nerdrum. He paints more than an exterior shell of a person. I feel he is always looking for the discovery, a true genius. I admire the obsession and passion he shows you when you see his work in person.
