Judit Nagy L. — LNJ — was born in Slovakia and currently lives in Switzerland. She was encouraged to create art at the age of five and received recognition as a young talent in the National Art Competition in Slovakia. The multi-talented artist proceeded to attain a Masters degree in Civil Engineering, built a family and business life, and walked the Way El Camino de Santiago for her 40th birthday. As a professional artist she has had five exhibitions in Switzerland and has been featured in several magazines.
About the wine painter - THE CURATOR SAYS:
LNJ is not just a painter, a visual artist, but she is a creative person who moves forward by inspiration:
She knows deeply that painting, like all creative activities, is "just" one tool that leads to self-expression and self-development. Judit knows that in reality we do not 'create', but we are more of a co-worker in the process of creation, which we embody. We draw out what is already present. For her, success is not driven by marketing, rather, she believes in the value of both uncompromising and high quality
Judit strives to develop her own expression with deep sincerity by reflecting the spirit of the place she inhabits and seeking her own destiny.
Judit's artistic self-declaration
My wine painting journey started 10 years before, shortly after I walked the Camino 2011. So much learning, trial and errors happened to get to my skill set today. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next decade holds!
The WINE porTRAITs are the works of art with mixed media, which are usually created on a stretched canvas or a wooden plate. I use real wine and soil straight from the winery from which I mix the wine paste that is essential for this type of art.
My most important goal is to project into my images the deepest structures and wonders of the created world which exist „written“ in every real wine.
By my WINEporTRAIT- s I'm looking not only for the complexity of the wines, but I am seeking for the 'truth' that touches us in the wine. There is the chance of a heart-touching encounter when one is open to receive the message expressed by the real wine. I just stick with the wine story and follow it on this path, hoping to warmly touch the heart and soul of a beholder.
The most important question for me is this: how can I stay constantly intuitive?
The intuitive way allows me to get to the centre of the picture without distraction. Walking this road reminds us that we are only escorts on the way, and we encourage the invited energy to open and express itself through us.
The intuition-based track is a path of trust, faith and love - mostly in an impressive abstract expressionism.
