This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Judie Bamber (born 1961) is an American artist based in Los Angeles. Her often representational paintings explore themes of gender, biography, and temporality. She teaches in the Master of Fine Arts program at Otis College of Art and Design.

Judie Bamber was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1961. She received her BFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1983. Bamber creates representational paintings and drawings based on photographic sources ranging from images of female genitalia to seascapes.

Her early work included still lifes in which objects, painted to scale, floated in front of monochromatic color fields. In 2002, Bamber began a series of seascapes, making initial plain-air watercolor sketches that she then used for oil paintings. From 2005-2014, she worked on the project Are You My Mother?, consisting of small-scale representational watercolors and graphite drawings, based on posed erotic and fashion like Polaroids her father took of her mother in the 1960s.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Judie Bamber graduated from California Institute of the Arts in Valencia in 1983. She works in a tiny garage near downtown Los Angeles where she paints small sinister objects on large monochrome fields. Her understated still lifes resonate with many more issues than their deceptively simple veneers might suggest. The underpinnings of the work, in many cases, are psychoanalytic.

Bamber has taught at the University of California at Irvine, as a visiting faculty member and at the University of California at Los Angeles and at California State University at Los Angeles.
