Transforming Brushstrokes 
Erin Loechner, 08.01.2013

“The world of beauty, especially the female face, is fascinating to me,” Judith writes. “I think it’s because it’s something that I can relate to, something that I wish I could be. I like the idea of transformation, but I’m at odds with the idea of artifice in my work. Sometimes I want to get rid of the flourishes and scribbly bits, but then I feel like that is what is beautiful to me.”


Romantic, vivid, textured, soulful

... those are the words that come to mind when looking at oil paintings by Toronto artist Judith Geher. Her original paintings are gorgeous, and there are at least three or four that are must-haves for my own art collection.

Geher has more flesh tones on her palette than any three makeup counters, and is happy to let them slide together like butter takes to cream, milk to sugar.




I'm jealous of Judith Geher
Danielle Krysa, June 6, 2013

Oooh, so pretty! Line drawings partially covered in thick oil paint masquerading as flowers! This is the work of Toronto based artist Judith Geher, and I am completely in love with each one of these paintings


Judith Geher's oil ladies
Georgia Francis King, March 16, 2013

As Toronto's Judith Geher understands, sometimes the secret to good art is knowing when a piece is finished. Using smatterings of thick oils and delicate slicks, Judith builds up texture in her portraits of ladies, always leaving a little bit left for the viewer to fill in themselves.


ART AGENDA: Judith Geher at Dianna Witte
Matthew Purvis, October 20, 2010
At the Dianna Witte Gallery in Leslieville, Judith Geher has a new set of paintings on display (also depicted in lead photo). The subtly textured portraits are done with acyclic on linen and oil on wood. Invoking static and strained moments, they play on density and rhythm to create frayed and discomforting images.

The talented Toronto artist discusses girls with guns, the idealized feminine aesthetic, and whether art should be beautiful.
