Perhaps no landscape of West Yorkshire is so iconic as our heather-clad moorland. It’s been inspiring writers and artists for generations and amongst our current generation few painters bring out its brooding beauty quite as effectively as Judith Levin. Although, as this exhibition shows, her subject matter can be far more varied, she seems drawn to return to the big open spaces; reproducing them on canvases that require a transit van to deliver them, down to tiny works, little larger than a postcard.
The open spaces have a special poignancy after lockdown this year and the opening up of galleries has provided further stimulus. As Judith says ‘I'm delighted to be having another exhibition at the Bingley Gallery, especially after so much solitary time in the studio.
The Paintings are complemented by new ‘Moorland’ ceramics by Cullingworth-based artist, Kath Bonson.
David Starley, the owner of the Bingley Gallery and an artist himself, commented that his first criteria for showing work is that he must like it and that very few artists can match the emotional appeal that Judith brings into her paintings
The exhibition will open on the 30th September and runs until 15th November Due to covid there will be no launch but a short video can be viewed on YouTube to give a flavour of the event: https://youtu.be/0tec2gYnBbo
