Judy Thomas' paintings are on view at The Cornerstone Lobby Gallery, Safe Harbors of the Hudson, 111 Broadway, Newburgh, NY, through 2018. These paintings, from 1984-1987 have survived several moves and are examples from a prolific period of Judy Thomas' work during her time living in Paris, West Germany and her first year in New York. These paintings were informed by chaos theory and the surrealist creative practice called automatic drawing or 'automatism', which she learned from studies with S.W. Hayter at Atelier 17 in Paris, while she was on a Fellowship through the Fondation des Etats-Unis from 1983-84.

SPACE CREATE is pleased to present Judy Thomas’ new painting series MAPPING, in the main gallery at 115 Broadway, Newburgh, NY. In this exhibition, Thomas shows lyrical works that explore the formal elements of color, line and form, revisiting 20th century abstraction through a 21st century lens. Underlying the playful nature of Thomas’ new paintings is an investigation into broader concepts of chaos and chance.
The inspiration for this series comes from the 1983 film Koyaanisqatsi, which in the Hopi language means life out of balance. The film is a juxtaposition of images and music by Phillip Glass, and describes the history ofmans impact on the planet and the end with the ancient prophecies of the end of the world. Thomas begins each painting with her own version of the surrealist technique automatism which has informed her work for decades. As each painting develops, Thomas imparts a formal eye to the original marks and shapes, moving lines and forms to better serve the composition. It's playing with mapping as a construct, framing time, relationships, even identities. It's exploring how we all chart our lives.
