Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery is celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary at 78th Street Studios with an exhibition of new work by Judith Brandon. Please join us for this special evening:

Judith Brandon
Turbulent Territory
November 15th, 2013 – January 11th, 2014
Wednesday-Saturday, 12:00pm-5:00pm or by appointment

Opening Reception
Friday, November 15th, 5:00pm-9:00pm

Judith Brandon's mastery of drawing is evident in every piece she creates, but it is the way in which she uses that mastery to forge a link between herself and the viewer that makes her work so exceptional. Her work has a sense of mystery and a powerful gravity, a subtle but irresistible pull that draws the viewer in and gives one a sense of being a privileged witness to epic moments in flux.

Ms. Brandon has tapped into something both primal and mystical, as though she has submerged herself in the collective subconscious of our dreams. Her compositions not only draw the viewer in, but also make the viewer feel transported to a higher plane of emotional and sensory experience, giving earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and tornados a feeling of transcendence.

What is most impressive about Ms. Brandon's work is not that she has created a single piece that evokes so much for the viewer, or even that she occasionally does so, it is that she consistently creates powerful works of art that engage the viewer and elevate that engagement to a sense of communion with the artist--and in that communion, she seems to show us forgotten scenes from our most powerful and secret dreams.
