The Darkroom presents Scaling the Untold, An Expedition of A Making, a solo exhibition by Dublin-based visual artist Wendy Judge.
Wendy Judge is a visual artist working with sculpture, photography and drawing each informing the other. Her work revolves around landscape and all that it entails. She is driven by the literary and the terrain it holds.
At the start of 2020 Judge was awarded a supported travel residency through the darkroom.ie to explore the landscapes around her. It was a simple idea of capturing landforms across changing counties and bring them back to the studio to tie them into my sculptural practice. This project was negotiated through the rolling lockdowns as county borders closed around me. In making this epic journey Judge took heed from Dr. William Dyer of Miskatonic University and was to discern one can never have too many note books of sketching paper or film to capture what might unfold.
