About the Artist:
When asked about her art and technique, Judith Bilick informed us: “I hand-paint the saw blades after they have been cleaned, sanded and painted with a coat of rust-retardant paint. I use acrylics, and after that dries, the painting is then sealed with a coat of clear acrylic enamel to seal and protect the artwork.
“I have always liked drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I took art classes in school and a few lessons later, after I started painting. I have worked with diverse media: oils, pastels, watercolors, and acrylics. I have sold numerous pieces over the years, and I also have entered several pieces in local and regional art shows. I started painting saw blades in 1990 and have really enjoyed painting on them. I have also painted miniatures on the faces of compact discs and on other different, unusual surfaces.”
Dogbotz Boneyard has collected the unusual art of Judith Bilick because of the novelty of artwork painted on unanticipated surfaces. As a true folk artist, Judith conveys, as did the generations of artisans before her, the daily life she perceives around her on everyday objects such as compact discs and saw blades, which are certainly more contemporary than salt boxes and keepsake chests. And so, from our Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery of Art for your own personal collection, we present Judith Bilick’s On the Beach.
