For more than thirty years, Judy Holding has established a strong identity as an artist through the development of a personal visual vocabulary of symbolic forms. In particular, her depictions of trees and birds, through her sculptures and works on paper, reflect her abiding love of the diverse flora and fauna of Australia. Holding says, “Working as a landscape artist in Australia, one is always conscious of those who have gone before. I have used the layering of watercolour images to stress the richness and unresolved tensions of the Australian bush.” Much of the motivation for her recent work is also drawn from her increasing concern with environmental issues affecting our natural world.
