Girls Brigade: Work by Judith G. Levy
Friday, September 28th, 6-9pm
September 28 - October 27, 2007
Judith Levy’s drawings and paintings explore larger social constructs, where disorder and anxiety lurk beneath appearances of normalcy and convention. In her current body of work, she has created imagery with its own fictional history and narrative, a group of girls who belong to a children’s army know as the Girls Brigade. These girls are the central characters in Levy’s drawings, paintings and mixed media installations. By incorporating humor with imagery that evokes historical references to groups whose ideologies provoked discord and mayhem Levy creates work that is at once whimsical and disturbing.
Judith Levy was born in New York and graduated from Hunter College with a BA in drawing and painting. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, Indianapolis, Kentucky and Canada in both group and solo shows. She has created several public art works including an installation in White River State Park in Indianapolis, IN and exhibited her work at the Miami Art Basel in 2006. Soo Visual Arts Center will present her first solo exhibition in Minneapolis.
