British born Amy Judd creates elegant, feminine pieces inspired by traditional folklore & mythology, exploring the enchanting relationship between women & nature, as told through these age old tales.

Clusters of wings & feathers emerge from female forms, enveloping their bodies and concealing their faces like a feathery armour, but these are not frail, delicate creatures. Her work effortlessly combines both softness, and strength. Subjects are painted with hazy brush strokes, soft colours and delicate little details but they have a carefree, feminine strength to their poses, grabbing & holding your attention immediately. Just as a birds fragile wing conceals it’s hidden power of flight, of freedom, these pieces seem to speak of the inner strength in every women behind the softness.

There is definitely a touch of surrealism about her pieces too, and they remind me a lot of Magritte‘s work, in both the technique, with it’s soft focus realism & the subjects, their obscured faces & the copious use of birds as symbolism. They also have the same dream like feel to his pieces, blurring the lines in a subtly unsettling way between the dream world & our reality.

    I really like this artwork it’s very creative in so many ways I like how he has envoked the femininity of a women’s persona and the strength of the bird as each bird has different symbolism to different cultures and spirituality. I feel very inspired by this and definitely connect to pieces that mix the real and sureal it gives so much character and interest.

    I love this artwork of hers, she’s really talented (I wish I was!). The pictures kind of make you feel calm when you look at them.. maybe that’s just me being weird, but I feel that they really change something inside you.

    Her work is beautiful! I also like that the women are “faceless”. Brilliant.

    These are all incredibly beautiful. I can’t tell whether I like the fact that we can’t see the women’s faces or whether their facelessness is disturbing. Either way, very beautiful indeed.

    Such beautiful images, and I love how you don’t even mind at all that the faces are covered up, even more alluring./Madison

    Wow, these paintings are so beautiful. So feminine with soft skin and long flowing locks, I love the way Amy paints hair – she captures it perfectly. My favourites are undoubtedly the ones of girls in side portrait, I love this one (http://www.amyjuddart.com/paintings/Recent_Work_Available_at_Hicks_Gallery/11) where you can just see her face. You always find the best artists Steph xxx

    These certainly seem to reference the paintings of Magritte. I’ll have to check the link for more of her beautiful work. Thanks for sharing!
