An Artist's JourneyBook - 2008
Photographer, artist, promoter and gallery owner, Michael Judge has led a whirlwind life. He's had two near-death experiences, sold millions of dollars worth of art, and created memorable visual images. In Captured Horizons, Judge writes about his many loves and adventures with unmitigated verve, much as he has lived his life. Whether he's describing his often stormy relationships with women, reminiscing about rubbing shoulders with movie starts, U.S. presidents, Mafiosi, wealthy globetrotters and art forgers, or revealing the inside dope about selling art on cruise ships, he tells it all with refreshing honesty. What emerges is the journey of a complex artist who is never afraid of reinventing himself. Works from Judge's extensive portfolio are interspersed throughout the book, including the spiritually inspired Light Paintings and the America series - the result of crisscrossing the back roads of the United States more than 30 times. In Captured Horizons words and images create a journey which not only captures, but expands our own horizons.
