Judith Hoyt was born in 1958 in the Catskill Mountains of New York. She has been making art from found metals for over thirty years. Judith’s process is a conversation between the artist and the materials she collects. She takes as a starting point the discoloration, corrosion, and imperfections of the found material.
“These collages are assembled in a very intuitive way... I try to speak to what unfolds beneath the surface, it is the relationships that I discover through the trial and error of moving pieces around until they form the narratives I am looking for.”
Her work is included in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum (New York), Pennsylvania Academy of Arts (Philadelphia), The Smithsonian Museum, (Washington, DC), and the Racine Art Museum (Racine, Wisconsin). Judith received the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Crafts in 2003. Her work has appeared in numerous books and catalogs including Altered Art by Terry Taylor, 500 Brooches by Marthe Le Van, and Found Object Art by Dorothy Spencer.
