 "Enduring Legacies"  

"Painting can be taught,  however, the gift of inspiration,  dedication and passion are within."     Judith Durr

"Judith Durr's paintings make you wonder if you are looking through an open  window,  rather than at a painting. Indian-art objects are "still life"  is Judith's special  talent-an art of   illusion - created by layers, many glazes, and a wet on wet technique.  It is why her paintings stand alone as  Enduring Legacies" that honor  American Indian  heritage.

Artist Judith Durr's exquisite oil paintings have taken Native American art to new levels on integrity, innovation spectacular style and dedication to realism making her one of the foremost Native American artists in the United States. 

Documenting the artifacts, the cultures and native styles in her oil paintings, Judith Durr integrates and preserves the enduring legacies of her Native American heritage. Her work honors all facets of Native American life,  showcasing their history through her colorful and dynamic still life oil paintings.  

Capturing the emotions of the viewer with her illusion and realism and texture,  you want to reach out and feel the fabric of the rug, the beadwork on the moccasins, the smoothness of the pottery or pick the kernels from the corn. Her distinctive style is unique with the use of a rug as a consistent background elemement in some of her paintings. 

Painting from her extensive collection, and from life, Judith enjoys the history and stories about each artifact.  Each painting is skillfully layered with colors and glazes using the technique of the old masters.  Her goal is too continually to push the boundaries  of excellence of superior oil paintings.  

Judith’s work is represented in several museum permanent collections including the Museum of  History and Anthropology, Mexico City, Mexico, Sharlot Hall Museum, Prescott, Arizona, and Pueblo Grande Museum, Phoenix, Arizona. Her genre includes western life, landscapes and historical research.

"My passion is the journey of producing the superior oil  paintings.   I maintain my   identity and heritage through my artwork." 

 Judith consistently paints the detailed rug background from the rugs she has collected over the years. Many of the native rugs, beaded mocassins and the jewelry Judith uses, are old amily pieces acquired while her family lived on the Navajo reservation in MontezumaCreek, Utah. It was these formative years  that have given Judith Durr's the inspiration for her exquisite oil paintings.  Some of her artifacts come from Judith's talented family members, her husband, mother, father and son. Her love for beadwork came from her mother, who     influenced her daughter with her wonderful talent and patience. Judith collects  Native artifacts, from South America to Canada. Her collection of authentic artifacts gives her source material to create the most accurate subject matter for her twelve layer oil paintings.
