About Judith Belzer
Trees are "the part of the landscape I relate to most," Belzer says, "as another horizontal on the vertical plane," and her multiple series of trees can attest to this thought. In The Inner Life of Trees, the artist zeros in on the trunk and bark of the tree, on line, light, and texture, that from far away appears like an aerial landscape. Her series Order of Things, inspired by Michel Foucault's 1966 book The Order of Things—an inquiry into the conditions of our relative episteme—delves into patterns and the notion of rediscovery; a small piece of bark could be a giant glacier with cracks, or a tree trunk appears as kaleidoscopic rings.
Belzer has had solo exhibitions at the Sonoma County Museum, George Lawson Gallery, and Morgan Lehman Gallery, among others. She has had group exhibitions at institutions such as the Arnot Art Museum, the Pelham Art Center, and the Valerie Carberry Gallery.Read Less
