Judyth Greenburgh - Artist
Judyth Greenburgh has successfully made the transition from a corporate advertising art director to a “feral artist” living in the tiny desert town of Darwin, California, near Death Valley in southern Inyo County. She enjoys reclaiming what has been abandoned through the transformative process of creating art.
I enjoy reclaiming what has been abandoned. I make my art out of discarded things. The alchemy of time has transformed the desert’s trash into treasures. Each one a rusty jewel.
I’m also “kaleidoscope junkie”. I see them as a metaphor for life and personal transformation. They create an infinite world of possibilities; the mirrors inside the kaleidoscopes reflect and project our point of view into something new. Our daily chaos re- ordered with the mandalas created. Kaleidoscopes make the ordinary more extraordinary, re- engaging the viewer to look at the world with a renewed sense of wonder, reclaiming the child within.
I believe in sharing the gifts that we have. I am blessed to have a passion for art and turning trash into treasure. Through ReUseArts and the Inyo Council for the Arts I have the good fortune to be able to teach and conduct workshops to the public and schools.
