Biography from Bentley Gallery:
Judith Foosaner’s images are filled with biomorphic forms, plant accumulation, and calligraphic marks, allowing the subtlety of line and shadow to aspire towards lyrical and rhythmic movements.   Working exclusively in black, Foosaner creates expressive line drawings on paper, adding black paint throughout.  She then slices and reassembles the drawings as collages on canvas.  The resulting works capture a tension between gesture and geometry, hand and grid; swirling light and dark forms interrupted by thin pasted rectangles.

Foosaner received her MFA from University of California-Berkeley.  She has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums across the country and abroad.  Included in the collections of San Diego Fine Art Museum; Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA; The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu, HI; Newport Harbor Art Museum in Newport Harbor, CA; The Oakland Museum in Oakland, CA; as well as many other museums and corporate collections.  She currently lives and works Berkeley, California.
