This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Judith Page was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and studied art at the University of Kentucky and Transylvania University. Early influences were her father, an amateur historian, photographer, and raconteur, who instilled in her a love and respect for history and the creative process; her optometrist, the photographer Ralph Eugene Meatyard, who influenced her through his commitment to a Gothic vision; and writers such as Flannery O’Connor, Ed McClanahan, and Carson McCullers who provided her with many potent visual images.

Page says that her "art emerges from a Gothic sensibility, a place where horror and beauty exist in close proximity, where innocence encounters depravity, where the spirit is consumed and revived from moment to moment.”

Page lived and worked in Florida until relocating to New York City in 1992, and currently lives in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. She received Individual Artist’s Fellowships from the Gottlieb Foundation in 2012 and 2002, from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in 2005-06 and 1998-99, from the State of Florida in 1992-93 and 1983-84, and was a Thomas P. Johnson Distinguished Visiting Scholar at Rollins College in 2001.

Exhibitions include The Photograph as Canvas, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT; I’m Not Like Everybody Else, Teapot, Cologne, Germany; Disarming Beauty: The Venus de Milo in 20th Century Art, Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, FL; and solo exhibitions at Islip Art Museum, East Islip, NY; Luise Ross Gallery, New York, NY; Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC; Massry Center for the Arts, The College of Saint Rose, Albany, NY; Lesley Heller Workspace, New York, NY and Hand Art Center, Stetson University, DeLand, FL.

Known for her inventive use of materials and stimulating social commentary, Page’s numerous exhibitions and installation projects were written about in Art Papers, Sculpture, The Brooklyn Rail, The New York Times, Art on Paper, Arts Magazine, and Art in America. In September 2008, a sixteen-page artist project was published in the literary/art journal, Post Road.

Page’s art is represented in numerous permanent collections including the Florida House of Representatives; Islip Art Museum, East Islip, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Tallahassee, FL; University of Kentucky Art Museum, Lexington; Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC; University of Iowa Museum of Art, Iowa City; and Orlando Museum of Art, FL. She is currently on the faculty of the MFA Fine Arts program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. 

Artist Statement:
Statement

My art emerges from a Gothic sensibility, a place where beauty and horror exist in close proximity, where innocence encounters depravity, where the spirit is consumed and revived from moment to moment. On a consistent trajectory since the early 1980s, my art focuses on the human condition and includes either evidence of the figure or the figure itself. The form, however, has swung between representation and abstraction, and between painting and sculpture. Many works combine both these approaches, and for the past ten years my art has also included collage, drawing, photography, sound, and text. I have explored subjects that include the transcendence of death through regeneration, the abuse of power and the plight of the powerless, and the struggle between physical necessity and spiritual values. My recent work explores the resilience of the human spirit played out through the juxtaposition of my personal history with the political, social and cultural history of our time. Working with the painting medium Tar Gel, my process becomes a metaphor for the fluidity of our dreams and aspirations as well as the fluidity of historical interpretation—an endless flow of vision and voice.
