In this CAMTalk, contemporary artist Judi Rotenberg  is in dialogue with her daughter, curator and gallerist Abigail Ross Goodman, about the paintings currently on display in Judi Rotenberg: Recent Works.  A life-long summer resident of Rockport and a highly respected artist, Judi works on a large scale, creating vibrant canvases that capture the fragility and strength of life through floral still lifes. It is a genre that Rotenberg has perfected over the past 40 years, and which continues to captivate her today.  

A daughter of the late American Impressionist Harold Rotenberg, Judi Rotenberg has emersed herself in art since childhood. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Boston University where she studied with Reed Kay and David Aaronson. She also studied privately with Francois Gall in Paris and Henry Schwartz in Boston. Here on Cape Ann, Judi benefited from instruction from Albert Alcalay, Barbara Swan and George Demetrios. Working primarily in acrylic, Judi Rotenberg’s recent paintings are unabashedly beautiful, alive with color and motion. Each composition is vibrant and fresh and represents a new challenge for Judi. Her canvases are rich in detail, from the foreground and the table on which a vase and bouquet sit, through the center of the canvas with its explosion of blossoms, to the top of the composition where Judi often includes the view across her studio or out over Rockport Harbor.
