Notes

"Judith Mason was without any doubt a maestro. Her paintings are meticulously crafted, layer upon layer, where she knew exactly what she needed to paint underneath in order to achieve the desired final painted surface on top. Scumbled layers, dabbed and wiped layers, thin and thick layers, opaque and glazed layers, glossy and matt layers, and concealed, open and gestural brush marks and flat layers. The viewer becomes engaged in a physical act of seeing, being prompted to bend and angle the head or body before the paintings, and to peer through the glazed layers and hold on to the textures illuminated by the raking light."
Keith Dietrich
