Judith Belzer

Judith Belzer, born in Chicago in 1956, studied literature at Bennington and Barnard College and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1979. She began painting in earnest while attending The New York Studio School, in 1980-81. Belzer lived and worked for many years on the East Coast, first in New York City and then in New England, before moving to Berkeley, California, in 2003. Although her painting often dwells on the edge between abstraction and representation, Belzer’s work always engages with the natural world and recently seeks to explore a through-line linking the organizing principles of the natural and built environment. Belzer’s paintings are shown regularly across the country, in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and L.A.
