Judith Joseph

I work across a range of media:  printmaking, painting and installation.  My art is highly detailed, narrative and historic/ folkloric.  I find ways to connect ancient mythologies and history with social justice and environmental issues in today’s world.

I am currently working on installation pieces and a woodcut series on the theme of refugee crises and population displacement.

My woodcut series about the Golem recalled a medieval tale about a sinister superman made of clay.  This unpredictable and monstrous figure evokes the danger of great power, when wielded by a being without a brain or a heart.  The Golem archetype expresses my anxiety about demagogues in our world.
