Night Fitties Series
This painting by Judith Tucker is part of a wider body of work called Fitties in which Judith responds to a part of North East Lincolnshire coast that might be considered the epitome of a landscape in which the human and non-human are interconnected and entwined. It is a place that invites questions about what is natural, and what is unnatural. Fitties originally means saltmarshes. The Fitties plotlands at Humberston lie behind marshy beach and dunes, a quirky domestication of land protected by raised banks from the threat of tidal surges. Here, since between the wars, local people and visitors have erected their diverse dwellings with individualistic names and styles, in order to enjoy the simple, restorative pleasures of seaside life.
Judith is interested in what it is that painting and drawing can explore and reveal about our relation with place. She is interested in memory, post-memory, notions of haunted archaeology and deep mappings.
Project FITTIES is a unique collaboration between Judith Tucker and two other artists, Annabel McCourt, a filmmaker and photographer and Harriet Tarlo, a poet, to realise an innovative cross-disciplinary project.
As well as being an artist, Judith is Senior Lecturer in the School of Design, University of Leeds.
