Gallery 1261 Show

Here is a link from Fine Art Connoisseur on the Contemporary Realism show at Gallery 1261 in Denver, CO

Contemporary Realism can be described as a straightforward approach to representation; it continues to be widely practiced in the contemporary post-abstract era. Realism within this exhibition is depicted in varying degrees, from hyper-real, which can be somewhat exaggerated, ironic, and conceptual in its nature, to semi-abstract, enticing the eye with a more relaxed approach. Each artist brings their own ideas and perspective to the table.
Figurative art -
Judith Peck, “American Dreaming,” 2019, oil, 30 x 24 in.
Contemporary Realists form a disparate group, but what they share is that they are literate in the concepts of modern art but choose to work in a more traditional form. Many contemporary realists actually began as abstract painters, having come through an educational system dominated by professors and theorists dismissive of representational painting.

Beautiful Bizarre Article

Here is an article on the upcoming show at Gallery 1261 with a feature including two of my paintings.

Judith Peck
Judith Peck textured portrait painting

I approach each new work with a point of view about the human experience and our common striving. Each element of the creative process shapes the expression of that idea: finding the right model and working with the way they emote that point of view; manipulating the paint in a way that captures its essence and shows the painter’s hand; and even finding a subject that will elicit the passion needed to invest in, struggle through, and complete a new piece. But it all starts with the germ of an idea that, with enough deliberate tending, might bloom into something greater.

Judith Peck -Memory's Reflection
oil and plaster on board- 40x30

My painting Memory's Reflection finds inspiration in and dialogue with Bouguereau's The Nymphaeum. His nymphs frolic naked by the water, beckoning the viewer to lose themselves in a fantasy born of classical Greece. Memory’s Reflection offers a modern retelling as allegory. My figure is unable to look away from the oncoming current while balancing herself precariously. Non-idealized and in modern dress, she denies our own attempts at escapism, demanding we face our history as she does. The canvas itself is affected by rending the classical idealism of The Nymphaeum into modern day – its surface is cracked with shards of broken plaster, evoking not only the modern condition of ancient Greek pottery, but also the conditions of living in a broken world.
