“Lange deliberately skirts the boundaries of fact & fiction in favor of a space where intellect & imagination are allowed to collide.”

Amy Judd is a London based artist who has been represented by Hicks Gallery Wimbledon for the last 10 years.
In recent years Amy’s work draws inspiration from the enchanting and imaginative relationship between women and animals (specifically birds) found in traditional mythologies and stories from around the world.
Amy’s paintings are sensitive silent moments, often between a woman and a bird, The figures are anonymous and allow their “familiars” to interact with the viewer. The composition, light and positioning of subject create curious images which conjure up new “mythological” narratives within the painting.
