Judith Seligson is an artist living in New York City and Alexandria, Virginia. The core of her work is a vast series of geometric, abstract, hard-edged oil paintings. She thinks of Paul Klee’s dynamic balance, Hans Hoffman’s push-pull, Mondrian’s precise intervals, and Mozart’s melodic genius as she paints.
In a 2016 review, The Washington Post said her style was reminiscent of Albers and Stella. Last year, Cambridge Scholars published her book, Gaps and the Creation of Ideas: An Artist’s Book. She has written articles that have appeared in The Radcliffe Quarterly, The Henry James Review, Judaism: A Journal of Jewish Life and Thought, and The Forward.
At Harvard/Radcliffe (’72-’73), the artist majored in Economics and took the first painting course given for credit in Harvard’s history. Subsequently, she was a teaching assistant in this course, taught by Flora Natapoff.
