The order IV, from The order series
Anne Judell's 'The order IV' evokes profound themes with great mastery of her preferred media of pastel and charcoal. The artist sees her work as a vehicle for expression of archetypal forces describing her art-making as a 'sacred act'. She has stated that her aim 'is to develop a sense of light emanating from the pictures, which is attained by the tones I use and the juxtaposition of tones' (Nevill Drury and Anna Voight ‘Anne Judell' in 'Fire and shadow: spirituality in contemporary Australian art', Craftsman House, Sydney 1996, p.132).
