Charity: water Close


When Michelangelo proclaimed that good painting is the kind that looks like sculpture, perhaps he was speaking to a future generation of artists – to a group of creatives that would aspire to create art in a paradoxical, revitalised way. For post-expressionist painter Judy Millar, painting and large-scale sculptures go hand in hand. This month, Judy (alongside a team of local art students) will create three vast site-specific painting installations, which will take over the IMA space. Interlacing the past, present and future of painting, Judy’s work – entitled Be Do Be Do Be Do – visually represents the strength and resilience of painting and celebrates its role as a powerful medium. The Institute of Modern Art will host Judy’s work until July 27.
