Samsara - made of light
Judy Woodborne is a printmaker and painter based in Cape Town, South Africa. She was awarded her Master of Fine Arts Degree with Distinction from the University of Cape Town in 1993 with a dissertation entitled Moria, a Eulogy of Folly. Her current work is a series of paintings based on the Elements. Her main inspiration comes from various trips she has undertaken around the world. Travels to Hong Kong, the south of China,Zanzibar, Istanbul and the Lakes in Salzburg have inspired her recent works: The Water Series:Persephone's Tears.

"Water is equated with wisdom, as the Daoist image of water always finding its way around obstacles. Restless water is a Buddhist symbol of the impermanence of all things; still water symbolizes meditative insight. In psychoanalysis it represents the depth of the unconscious.... And water also divides the worlds of the living and the dead, of the natural and the supernatural."
[from: Dictionary of Symbols in Myth, Art and Literature. Editor: Jack Tresidder]
