Artist of the day: Judy O'Leary
Judy is another of the wonderful artists I met while in Red Deer (oh what a time I had there!) These images are of some recent work she started last year. She says "I have been doing all sorts of things related to genetically modified food and plants. These small coloured clay flowers (3-5 cm) are inspired by Asian lilies, but are "modified" with thin laminations of geometric millifiori. I grow some real lilies in my rock garden here in the Alberta foothills, but bears do come out the woods to nibble on them - a different kind of modification!"
Please check out more of her work at her website Water Valley Studios.
