About Judith Lungen

Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, raised in upstate New York’s Borscht Belt, Judith studied water color painting with Robert Longo and learned set design during her apprenticeship at the Mountaindale Playhouse, Musical Summer Stock Repertory Theatre-in-the-Round.

After receiving her B.F.A. from the American College of Jerusalem, Judith made Aliyah and served in the IDF (Nahal). Finishing her army service Judith apprenticed with Israeli sculptor, Robbi Scharf and was commissioned to create and execute a series of murals for Kibbutz Hulda. Working in watercolors, charcoals and acrylics Judith held her first exhibitions at “Galleria Ha’Ya’ar” in Central Israel.

Judith set off on her extensive travels and exhibited her watercolors in Amsterdam, Montreal, New York and Brighton & Hove. She landed solo exhibitions in London’s Women’s Art Alliance and New York’s Catskill Art Society’s Sullivan County Museum, Beck Gallery.

She subsequently participated in the “British Royal Society of Women Artists Exhibition” at The Mall Galleries, The Mall, London.

Settling in London and residing on her narrowboat in Little Venice, Judith prolifically sold and exhibited her watercolors. She received an invitation to work at the newly established Walker Books, a children’s book publishing company. Transitioning into Graphic Design, Judith credits award winning Amelia Edwards, founding Art Director, as one of her greatest mentors.

Expanding into the world of film, Judith was invited to attend the World Premiere screening at the 1990 Venice Film Festival of the independently produced film-in-concert, ROMEO.JULIET by director Armondo Linus Acosta.

Judith joined the Hollywood based marketing and public relations team. She represented Mr. Acosta in negotiations with Jeff Berg, Ed Limato, Gary Concoff, Paula Wagner, Jonathan Weisgal, Barry Hirsch, representatives from ICM, CAA, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Disney Studios, Hollywood Bowl, Kirov Orchestra, Lincoln Center, ballet icon Rudolf Nureyev, and Maestros Valery Gergiev and Lalo Schifrin.

Returning to Israel, Judith worked with Lia van Leer at the Jerusalem Film Center. For ten years Judith was festival coordinator, English language spokesperson and developed marketing and public relations materials, publishing the first Arabic press kits.

Most recently, Judith delved into Digital Art where she finds a sense of belonging and wonderment entering the 21st century of creative media.

Since releasing a selection of digital paintings for exhibition purposes, Judith’s work has been invited to an unprecedented 50 exhibitions, competitions and publication and recipient of 32 awards and citations over the past 12 months.

Judith is honored to be the sole Israeli representative in 45 of the 50 international juried exhibitions.

She is also the sole Israeli representative in the CULTURALLY ARTS COLLECTIVE ‘ARTIST IN RESIDENCE’ Program.

Judith is a FEATURED ARTIST at ARTGALLERY 118 and TEBBS CONTEMPORARY ART VIRTUAL GALLERY.

THE FUTURE

Two years ago Judith embarked on a major multi-media project entitled FATHER GIRI’S DIARY, A PILGRIM’S JOURNEY. After completing the narrative text she focused on creating THE DIARY artwork that expanded into a collection of 65 digital paintings.

Father Giri is a young Catholic priest from India who in 1957 is sent to Jerusalem on Holy Pilgrimage. Born of a Hindu father and a Portuguese mother, Giri is a mystic who devotes himself to the Divine Mother.

By creating the fictitious Father Giri, Judith is free to explore and blend Hebraic, Hindu, Ethiopian, Catholic and Yoruban imagery and themes.

While the digital paintings gracefully stand alone and continue to receive worldwide accolades and invitations, Judith’s goal is to mount a multi-media installation featuring the paintings with narrative text and video projection.

IN HER OWN WORDS

“Transcending limitations, Art is the vehicle that transports the Observer and the Artist into the mystical realms of the seemingly impossible and unattainable.”

“FATHER GIRI’S DIARY breaks through old, stale, irrelevant beliefs. The Observer is given the rare opportunity to experience through ‘Art and Beauty’ mankind’s common quest to seek, find and experience love, healing, peace and goodness.”

“The true essence of Art is Grace and only through Grace can humanity dissolve discord, misunderstandings, religious conflict, wrong thinking and prejudice.”
