In her Edgelands series, Judith Belzer investigates the fissure separating the built environment from the natural one. As these drawings make clear, however, there is not always a distinct boundary between the two. Belzer’s observations, sensations and meanderings are absorbed and manifested through energetic mark making on canvas and paper. Scale becomes ambiguous as micro and macro merge, planes shift, and pattern morphs. The movement of line and pattern in the drawings allows the contrasting environments to interlace, indicating the way in which the natural and industrial are interconnected.

Judith Belzer’s work has appeared in numerous exhibitions nationwide. Paintings from her Edgelands series are on view at Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York, NY, during April 2013. She has had solo exhibitions at George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco, CA; Valerie Carberry Gallery, Chicago, IL; and dosa 818, Los Angeles, CA. Her paintings are included in Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design, on view at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, NY. She received a BA from Barnard College and did post-graduate work at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture.
