Judith Martinez – Palimpsest

Judith Martinez – Palimpsest

My work alters fragments from the past to create a present.

I treat the layers of memory and thought as an archaeologist would a dig-site – I displace people from antique images and create new landscapes around them, exploring human identity and the notion of the individual through time and place… Each piece pays respect to its borrowed subject.

It’s a growing body of work – a family of images.
