Judith Modrak is fascinated with scientific advances that increase our understanding of the mechanisms that trigger and regulate thought, action, memory and feelings. Her sculpted figurative forms, embedded with messages of hope and despair, seek to decode inner psychological and emotive worlds as she tackles universal issues of empathy, cognition, aging and mental illness.
Modrak has exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries, museums and art fairs throughout the United States, including Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, the Trenton Art Museum, Point Park University, the Woodstock Museum, Art New York (part of Art Frieze), Governors Island and the University of Rochester’s Hartnett Gallery. She has received a chashama/National Endowment for the Arts grant and two gold medals in sculpture from the National Association of Women Artists, among other awards.
Modrak's work has been featured and reviewed in literary, scientific and news publications, including SciArt, ASCI, Sculpture Magazine, Rochester Review and The Pittsburgh-Tribune. Her work is in many private collections throughout the United States.
