slow me up: judyth van amringe

Everything artist Judyth Van Amringe touches undergoes a transfiguration, whether it is glass, wool, clay, paper, pearls, silver or silk. Nothing she makes is like anything you’ve ever seen before. For a while she was preoccupied by the depths of the watery world; the photo captures a glass bubble and clay coral moment that I keep on the windowsill to catch the afternoon light. Judyth has just completed an installation in Philadelphia at the Eastern State Penitentary; she describes it as a “monument to lost souls”. Crosses, Bones, Cherry Trees runs through May 14th.
