Judith Perl’s art encompasses several art genres – sculpture, painting and bas-relief. Her first encounter with sculpture was in a pottery workshop, where the standard vase took the shape of a woman’s torso in her hands.  This inspired her to explore sculpture, eventually finding her passion in bronze. 

Judith’s work gained recognition in the California Bay Area when she won first prize for her David and Goliath Statute exhibited in Palo Alto in 2007. At the time she started selling her art to private collectors in the USA.  In 2011 Judith was commissioned to make two giant bronze statutes for the Madatech Museum, Israel’s National Museum of Science, Technology & Space.  These two larger-than-life massive statues, Archimedes and Leonardo Da Vinci, are the centerpieces of the newly inaugurated gardens in the museums.

Judith studied at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto and the California and the Scottsdale Artists’ School in Arizona, as well as participating in workshops guided by renowned experts in California for eight years.

Judith’s work process is remarkably swift and flowing. She begins working with a vague idea, and her creation takes shape independently, and often unexpectedly.  In a very short time, the statue starts to show a clear direction toward a recognizable end result.

Judith’s statues are usually quite figurative; She tackles subjects that entail a story, an idea, or a special meaning.  Her deep respect for nature causes her to bring nature into her work. She often merges a variety of materials into her sculptures – stones, styrofoam, tree branches, fruit, nuts and even readymade jewels.

Judith tends to work with larger-than-life, monumental figures. Her hands naturally wield large-scale creations. Large feet are a recurring motif in her work, lending a sense of power to the sculpture.

Besides sculpting, Judith also paints large canvases, mainly in acrylic. Her paintings are generally inspired by an object, but take on another direction during the work process. Her work is highly abstract, and based on bold colors related to her state of mind.
