Contemporary abstract artist Judy Hintz Cox has been exploring her own fashion of authentic abstract paintings for over thirty years. By experimenting with numerous unusual media, including epoxy resin and encaustic wax, Judy’s abstract paintings push the envelope of modern abstract art. As an artist, Judy’s boundless power and minimalist sensibilities come through in a range of her authentic abstract paintings, and 1 consider the expressive textures of her white encaustic series, the vibrant hues of her epoxy resin paintings, or the subdued tones of her abstract ochre series, is enough to be transported emotionally and spiritually in a technique that just the best of modern abstract art will achieve.
Judy derives inspiration from various sources, as well as the wealthy and contrasting properties of black and white photography inform a few of her many celebrated modern abstract painting. Judy’s abstract black and white paintings eschew the vibrant coloration of a few of her different function, including her epoxy resin paintings, in favor of boldly contrasting lines and energetic brush function. The feverish, usually aggressive composition of these abstract black and white paintings excites, energizes, and challenges audience to look at themselves — and reexamine their expectations of modern abstract painting.
Judy is recognized the planet over for her modern abstract paintings, and in specific for her authentic abstract series that explore specific themes, techniques, and approaches to abstract painting. Judy’s epoxy resin paintings, for illustration, employ the difficult and risky substance of epoxy resin to achieve startling degrees of translucency and vibrant color enlargement that distinguish these very authentic abstract paintings from much else in the planet of modern abstract art.
Such originality and experimentation with brand-new techniques is a hallmark of Judy’s, whether enjoyed in the eloquent topography of her white encaustic series, the more conventionally modern painting of her abstract ochre series, or the boundary-pushing freneticism of her abstract black and white paintings.
For over thirty years Judy Hintz Cox has explored her specific creative vision through a range of media, and her boundless vitality and minimalist sensibilities come through in every painting. Never happy with any one fashion or approach, Judy’s function delves into territories of theme and technique that combine a searching, restless range with a cohesive artistic special to her. It is within the standard of line and consistency that Judy is many expressive, whether that be watched in the cautious irregularities of her encaustic wax series, the weighty translucency of her function with epoxy resin, the brazen freneticism of her black and white abstracts, or the serendipitous juxtapositions of information and composition of her mixed media function.
