Named by some as the “Queen of Kitsch”, Judy Darragh’s colourful and distinctive aesthetic has her renowned as a leading artist in New Zealand. Constantly working between different mediums and surfaces- but consistently using colours in the neon spectrum, Darragh predominantly works with recycled second-hand objects and transforms them into eclectic artworks.
Looking at topics such as nostalgia and consumerism, Judy Darragh has the unique ability to transfer our initial understandings of objects and materials; constantly re-inventing and finding different purposes for materials.
Her end product is always an entrancing slap of colour and assorted material. The Queen of Kitsch has us captivated!
