May 22nd Exhibition
Mash Up 2
May 22nd through June 15th, 2014, Opening:May 22, 6-9pm
Judy Blum Reddy has an attraction to lists, and the straightforward ordering of information provides her with a schema for the creation of her work. From this catalog of sequential information, Blum Reddy creates visible concrete poetry in a paced litany of abstract language associations that are meditative, comic and whimsical.
Order and chaos are mutual concerns while the comfort of repetition and the ease of simplicity mask a disquieting absurdity. Judy Blum Reddy’s clarity of both form and intention posits a smooth sliding scale in which to measure the mundane as well as the uncanny.
Judy Blum Reddy has B.F.A. from Cooper Union and has shown in New York City at P.S. 1/MoMA, Art in General, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, ABC No Rio and at Rutgers University, New Jersey, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and Galeria Nicolas Deman in Paris.
