Perspective – Limited Edition (5) Giclée Print
The concept of bondage as a form of liberation appears over and over in Judi's work. The woman in Perspective has a defiant, serious look - and in her eyes are stars. That's because the freedom to relinquish control is itself a subtle form of power – or, as Judi puts it: "the power of a disciple, who holds her god by the balls with her worship."
Perspective approaches this topic with an androgynous edge because gender, like power, depends on how you look at it.
With gorgeous detail and art nouveau styling, Perspective is a confident statement that things are not always as they seem.

She has an avid collector base from the feminist-centred and invite-only parties that Judi curates. Her work is often confrontational, and her erotic work has seen her banned from Amazon and, at times, from Facebook.
“I do political art, I get banned from Amazon for my erotic colouring books, and my facebook gets shut down because there are nipples, so it’s not without confrontation.”
She’s regularly commissioned for individual portraits, and for her intimate, often erotic works.
A willingness to confront injustice has run through Judi’s life. South African-born, as a student, Judi was often arrested as part of the anti-aparteid movement in South Africa, prior to the release of Nelson Mandela.
Today the fetish scene of her home town in Brighton, UK, feeds into her art. “As a feminist, I find the whole fetish thing very interesting territory. I absolutely believe that the people have the strength to be revolting if they wanted to. I’m all for civil disobedience.”
“I find the human body beautiful,” says Judi, “in all its complexity, intricacy and mess. The human body one of the most stunning, organic machines in existence.”
