To create an “original object” that has not existed before that contains an aesthetic derived from my subconscious thoughts and memory is the objective for my art. Imagery of structures and patterns reveal themselves as the art materials lead and I follow.” – Judith Visker Judith Visker is passionate about art. From art history classes to teaching adult classes to dedicated studio time, she commits to her creative process of originality. Influenced by the work of her cousin Robert Rauschenberg she works expressively and fearlessly to create a uniqueness to her style that can be recognized as a Visker piece. VIsker’s early work contained recognizable imagery but she is leaning more toward non-objectivity. As she approaches the canvas she tones it first with a warm layer of paint. Called by many “A Colorist,” she intuitively dips her acrylics from her palette, sprays on glazes, wipes out shapes, and if so moved adds mixed media papers. Final touches may include thinker paint applied with a palette knife as well as linear shapes. Returning to college after a career in nursing, Visker obtained her BFA and MA in studio art. She attends one major workshop yearly by Katherine Chang Liu. She prefers Katherine’s “art whisperer” technique with no demonstrations. This excellent instructor views Visker’s past year’s work and offers guidance into identifying more of her authentic voice.
