We are devastated to announce the sudden loss of Judith 13/11/23. She was an accomplished and most generous artist, academic, curator, teacher and collaborator. Her long term collaboration with her partner, the poet, Harriet Tarlo developed drawings, paintings and poetry in conversation.
"When I paint it's always a question of a negotiation between the medium, the place and myself. Through this work I exploit both how we might be inhabited by our histories, memories, and experiences, our own and those of others, and the ways in which those places also bear traces of others, both visible and invisible."
"The paintings and drawings become a place between these psychic traces and the actual traces in the landscape."
Judith Tucker completed a B.A. Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford (1978 – 81) and an M.A. Fine Art followed by a PhD in Fine Art at the University of Leeds (1999 – 2002). Between 2003 and 2006 she held an AHRC fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Leeds. When she is not in her studio, she was Director of Research Culture and Impact in the School of Design at the University of Leeds and most recently Chair of Contemporary British Painting.
