Judy Millar, Artist

This is one of the paintings in our collection. It was made in New Zealand in 2002.
About the Work
The word that always sets my teeth on edge is 'gesture'. Gesture seems like something that comes gushing out from deep inside you. That is not really what I am interested in. My work is much more about drawing; it is about looking and seeing, less about 'expressing'. I'm using gesture only in the sense that a gesture can communicate something.
