Judith Ornstein
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Red Hook



ARTIST STATEMENT: STATEMENT I am an abstract artist whose imagery melds poetic impulse with networks of line and form. Using organic forms and a bright color pallet I seek to distill blocks of emotion and complex experiences into the closely observed spacial fragments. Networks of marks morph into the swells, inlets and an index of moves, teeming with detail and familiar shapes. I weave a wide range of references including cartoons, molecules and biological forms. My drawings are stream of consciousness and their process takes a whole body approach as I delve into the details. Color works directly on our emotional core. My off-kiter color blocks are put together in a tangled space as a kind of improvisational universe. I create kaleidoscopic effects that evoke a vibrant interior realm and represents the reciprocity between space and mind. I freely use surprising and abrupt transitions. I want to make a compelling pictorial event that would be an amalgamation of my sympathies and influences. BIO Judith Ornstein was born in Newark, NJ and received her MFA from Yale School of Art in 1975. Her first show in was a 2 person show with Susan Rothenberg.
