Judith Klugerman’s work often recalls, in an abstract way, the colours and textures of places she has visited. These images engraved in Klugerman’s memory are re-invented in her etchings, weavings, and paintings. They crop up as overlapping layers of colour, subtle linear markings, and traces of poetry.
Drawing is a continuous part of Klugerman’s practice. Linear elements often structure the surface of her works, whether outlining an area or creating movement, such as in the tapestry weavings that undulate across and down gallery walls. Her wall pieces, prints, and paintings have a rhythmic consistency in which colours, shapes, and lines may repeat from previous works, allowing the viewer to move easily from one piece to the next as if turning the pages of a book.
