About Judith Zur

I am a painter, therapist and anthropologist living in Oaxaca since 1998 and prior to that in London. My portrait and landscape paintings are in oil and include themes of campesinos in their surroundings, from Guatemala and Oaxaca. The landscapes tend to be plein air and it has been a privilege to travel to the countryside, close to our home, to paint scenes of people working in the fields, often using agricultural techniques that are centuries old, and to be invited to share the foods produced by locals from the crops we watched grow. The paintings from Guatemala are based on fieldwork over three years in the Quiché and Baja Verapaz provinces. My book called Violent Memories, published by Perseus press in 1998 based on anthropological fieldwork in Guatemala about how communities and particularly widows reconstruct their life after civil war. The paintings are an attempt to continue to capture this story. The paintings of Oaxaca are another, ongoing story of an, equally, ineffable process. It seems that neither words nor images can convey all that there is to tell...
