Judith Graham

 

In the duality of our world, my pieces flow from the harmonizing, from the freedom “muge” (liberation), from restrictions in my existence.

My statement is “no statement”. I make something because I was inspired. I do not explain it to myself or anyone else. The work flows without the mind stopping to pause or separate. Should my piece be noticed or the observer continues on his journey, the result is the same, the piece was not made in vain.
