Judge’s provocative new installation focuses on the relationship between a large-scale cast concrete sculpture sited in the Museum’s inner courtyard and a twenty-nine-foot-long drawing that will fill the wall of the adjacent corridor gallery.
The exhibition will also feature several smaller pieces of sculpture, drawings, and unique prints that enjoy aclose formal relationship to one another and the environment. The most prominent shape in Mary Judge’s new work is the segmented quatrefoil, a four-lobed, deceptively-simple, but complex form that appears repeatedly in nature. Judge explores the underlying geometry of the quatrefoil to generate an almost unlimited variety of formal patterns. Each work offers a new array of circles, loops, twists, and waves that are realized in either two or three dimensions.
