Judith Daams is a Dutch self-taught artist and specialises in painting birds and other animals. Her work is highly detailed and characterised by the solitude of a subject in a minimalist environment or negative space around it. The artists’ paintings express a certain calmness but will draw you in to study the details. The space around the subject gives the viewer the opportunity to zoom out and wonder what the animal is looking at. The interaction between the human urge to look for an emotion or connect a feeling and the image of an animal which does not necessarily have a strong mimicry is what the artist pursues in her paintings.
