Piece description from the artist
Falling is the antithesis of rising, perhaps, but this painting has a dream-like innocence. There is no panic in these figures; indeed, there is a feeling of potential pleasurable connection in the two largest forms. I like the way the red connotes blood and heat in the limited palette.
Judith Bair's work deals with the connection between human life, spirituality and nature.
At the beginning of her painting career, Judith used the form of a cedar tree to anchor her work in the context of the natural world. This allowed her to begin exploring the connection between physical and spiritual sources of life. In this sense, many of Judith's paintings serve as metaphorical landscapes, using images the physical, natural world as a way to explore her figurative and symbolic ideas.
Judith works with "oilbars":http://www.winsornewton.com/products/oil-colours/artists-oilbar, which allow her to have a more direct, physical relationship with the canvas and create more gestural, expressive marks. With this medium, Judith creates soft, sensual and often ethereal paintings with poetic, organic imagery.
