JUDY MANDOLF    
 
   
 

Her images have their genesis in her original photographs which are scanned into her computer, collaged, "painted" and otherwise manipulated by various software programs. They are then printed on textured paper with archival inks and sometimes further enhanced by applying various paints and pencils to the surface. "I had images floating in my mind for years that I was unable to reproduce photographically" she said. "I am so fascinated by the absolute freedom afforded by the digital medium to create my mindscapes."

Judy was selected International Photographer magazine's Photographer of the Year in 1988, was awarded the Gold Medal Discovery award by Art of California magazine in 1992 and won the New Names/New Face competition at the prestigious Santa Fe East Gallery in Sante Fe, New Mexico, in 1990. Her image of Amish children toured Europe for two years as part of the Women Photographers in America exhibition. In 1994 her figurative studies were part of a cultural exchange with Hungary.

She has been featured in solo exhibitions in San Diego, Sante Fe, and Taos, New Mexico, and at the University of Alabama. She has also exhibited at Arizona State University, University of Delaware, New Mexico State University and numerous group exhibits throughout the country. Her work is included in the corporate collection of Merck, Sharpe, and Dohme and was included in a Bristol Meyers/Squibb corporate collection.

Her work has been published in American Photographer, New Mexico Photographer, Art of California, On the Boulevard, The Exhibitioner, 360 Degrees, Photographers Forum magazine and Best of Photography annuals.

Judy's work is available in prints as well as selected works for posters. Visit her gallery for more of her art and contact information.
