work in process from the Wall Jewelry series
Judy Parady started making jewelry at sixteen. Her fascination with making and creating turned into a necessity and a passion. This Passion is as much a part of her as breathing. She studied Jewelry Design and Silversmithing/Sculpture at the Georgia State University. She uses her knowledge from these studies to create jewelry, drawings, paintings and sculpture. One of these unique artworks are the “work in process.” The Dalton Gallery in Decatur, GA exhibited this work. One finds overtures of evolution in these creatures, creatures that form a spiral of life. Emotions of seeing without eyes, of touching with fragile translucent skin.
I am interested in finding the code, the answers, that are contained in the elemental. I want to know what is the least amount of information needed to express a concept, or experience; what is the fundamental essence of this physical world. I use sculpture and painting to express this exploration. Current work attempts to visualize the world of subatomic particle physics.--Judy Parady
