This painting is part of a new body of work by Judith Tucker called Dark Marsh which considers the pioneering salt marsh plants of the Humberston Fitties, on the borders of Tetney Marsh. The artist was drawn to these plants visually, but also in terms of their ecological niche. They are both vulnerable to sea-level rise, but also help to protect the land from flooding, so raise many questions about saltmarsh and coastal erosion. The work is intended to be seen in relation to the Night Fitties. Together the two series explore human and more-than-human worlds in microcosm and juxtaposition, touching on the play of light, tide and colour, uncanny transformations after dark, and notions of vulnerability, occupation, resilience and reclamation. The artist and Harriet Tarlo plan to extend this work in the coming years, hoping to deepen further our understanding and to make new exhibitions and publications related to it.
As well as being an artist, Judith is Senior Lecturer in the School of Design, University of Leeds.
