JUDY ANDERSON of Kukucaju
kukucaju paintings on wood is the work of local artist Judy Anderson. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design and the University of Guelph, her work isplayful and quirky, takinginspiration from all things that amuse her; small furry mammals, cowpokes, monsters, storytelling, and in particular, the curious fascinations children. This series of paintings draws from the often dark sides of the imagination and is intended to fuel the creative furnaces of young and old.
kukucaju’s unique brand of serious-proof art has been traveling the countryside since 2007. Each piece is made entirely by hand at kukucaju headquarters in Damascus Ontario using acrylic, latex, vintage buttons, beads and various odd bits on salvaged plywood, solid off-cuts and finished with lacquer.
