This new show is about exploring the ethereal and intangible nature of air. Judit Prieto was inspired to create a series of new works taking her own vision of this element, using techniques such as oil painting and linocut.
In her paintings, Judit uses layers of perspex with different colours of oil paint that mix together without interference from the artist, creating new colours and shapes. Her prints are the result of the exploration of colour, using controlled colours that are then blended together to create different combinations as a background.
Judit Prieto was born in Barcelona and is now based in Stoke Newington. She became interested in drawing and painting as a child. In the late nineties she did a course in photography and then completed a Degree in Interior Design in 2002. She moved to London in 2010 and completed a part-time Foundation Diploma Course at the Hampstead School of Art with distinction. At the Rootstein Hopkins Drawing Exhibition 2013, she was selected for a Tate Modern Community Learning Award. Her first solo exhibition was in Sabadell (Barcelona) in January 2015.
