Considering Art Podcast – Judy Millar, abstract painter

In our latest podcast episode, New Zealand artist Judy Millar talks about the dynamic abstract action paintings that she makes in her studio at a remote location outside Auckland, her exhibit at the 2009 prestigious Venice Biennale, her dislike of the word “gestural” as a description of her style, her “out of body” experiences when viewing certain works and her “site-antagonistic” public sculptures.
