Judith Montminy

  • HONORS & EXHIBITIONS

In deliberately built environments – especially cities – I am drawn to juxtaposed triangles, diagonals and parallel lines.

With a nod to cubism, my goal is to illustrate a setting's rhythmic and graphic underpinnings by embracing both strong geometric compositions and abstraction.

Dynamic interactions between shapes, light, color, reflections and texture resonate with me personally. Their patterns soothe and inspire, even if a scene’s individual elements may appear to shout rather than whisper.
