Sarah Judges joined the David Krut Workshop Team as an intern in 2018, and soon became a permanent member of the DKW team, creating artworks and prints. Her work has been shown on The Cat Show, 2018, DKP Johannesburg and Kind of Blue, 2019, DKP Johannesburg.
Born in Johannesburg, Sarah completed her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts at The University of the Witwatersrand (WITS) in 2018. She has been a Top 10 Finalist of the Wits Young Artist Award 2017 and 2018, Art on Paper Award winner of the Thami Mnyele Art Award 2017, Top 100 Finalist of the Sasol New Signatures competition 2018.
Sarah’s own artistic work is situated in and around the urban of the larger Johannesburg and uses linocut printmaking as primary her medium but explores with other printmaking techniques. Her interests lie in challenging mundane ways of making marks and or imagery. The process of coming to an artwork plays a big part in her practice.
Sarah believes that her role in society should be to question and or interrogate things that she is faced with. Visual language is highly effective and can be spoken and understood in many different contexts. She engages with Johannesburg, its buildings, their power relations, and their surroundings, exploring unfamiliar spaces along with her daily travelled spaces, becoming more aware of her own surroundings. She has realised that her positionality as a White South African female plays a role in her interrogation process, she marvels in creation, questions, looks at the past, acknowledges it and uses it to move to higher heights in creating a better future.
