Artist talk and book presentation with Judy Millar


Judy Millar (*1959, Auckland), who represented New Zealand at the 2009 Venice Biennale with Francis Upritchard, became known for gestural paintings with an intense color palette. The specific aesthetic of her work is owed to a two-part technique. The paint is mixed, poured onto a canvas lying on the floor, and then smeared with a rag, palette knife, or other tool. More recently she has developed her paintings into sculptures by scanning small-format images and printing them, many times enlarged, on vinyl.

In conversation with Dr. Ulrike Schick (Director of the Museum für gegenstandsfreie Kunst, Otterndorf) Judy Millar will offer an in-depth view of her work and will also present her recent publication “The Rainbow Loop” (Kerber Verlag).
