‘Judy Buxton’s painting, as any true painter must see at once, is all about the paint, the stuff and the surface of it, and the making of the painting, the move of the hand and the touch of the brush. Here are paintings as image, stuff and surface, mediated not by the mind alone, but by intelligent, unselfconscious intuition, and a love of what there is to be seen – and done. Losing herself thus, as I say, so intelligently and responsively in her work, she declares herself as the true painter and artist she clearly is.‘
