(This video was originally made for www.kapritv.com and is just being used as example content and it does not follow The Interview (London) Ltd's interview angle or structure).
The Avian Collection is a series of oil paintings featuring women and birds, transformed together as one. The series represents the strength, beauty, femininity and bravery of women. The feathers symbolise armour as opposed to fragility or delicacy. Judd uses Greek mythological symbols such as; Minerva’s Owl, Leda’s Swan and Freyja’s cloak of falcon feathers as part of the framework and inspiration behind the collection.
Painting has always been a passion for Judd, who studied art in the UK, Judd takes inspiration from the fashion industry, with particular interest in the work of Schiaperrelli, Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy. Their use of shapes and their fascination with nature reflected in the use of feathers and taxidermy resonates with Amy’s work.
Amy Judd is represented by Hicks Gallery, Wimbledon who have sold her work internationally and will soon be going to Stockholm Art Fair with Amy’s paintings.
