Lauren Judge (°1979, Kitchener, Ontario) experiments with acrylic paint and aleatoric processes. She formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes are non-objective, unfiltered, and frequently revealed as assemblages. She masterfully creates intense personal moments with abstraction.
Lauren Judge was raised in Kitchener, Ontario. She completed her Bachelor degree at York University, and then her Masters at the University of Waterloo. Lauren first learned about painting from her father, Martin, an accomplished local portrait artist. Her first exhibition and foray into curating was in 1997 (Ekstasis). Since 2007, Lauren has practiced professionally and now has paintings in personal collections across Canada, the US and Latin America. She is also an experienced hand knitter, designing original accessories, baskets and large-scale installations.
Lauren’s interests include colour theory, ecofeminism, international affairs, environmental issues, human behaviour, animal behaviour and biological processes. Artistic influences include the abstract expressionists, Chagall, Kandinsky, the Bauhaus, and more recently the writings and paintings of Monica Sjöö
