Oakland artist Judy Levit’s work is inspired by discovery. From world travel to everyday moments to experiences accessed via dreams and imagination, her abstract paintings embody a sense of discovery through both her creative process and visual destination.
Using charcoal, acrylic, hand-painted collage papers, fabric and found papers, Levit works without a plan. She explains, “As I apply the materials, they inspire new ideas, each step suggesting another.” This intuitive process leads Levit to create bright, airy compositions that hint at imagined cities and invented landscapes.
