Judith Serling Sturm

Judith Serling Sturm

Judith's interest in book arts began as a bookbinding apprentice. She was captivated by exposed bindings, the effort of ‘keeping it together’ assuming a position equal in beauty, in strength, in voice, to structure and content. Working in both traditional and non-traditional book forms, her work explores the way in which materials, structure, surface design techniques, bindings, and text communicate and add nuance to content.

Her attraction to mixing media has led her to sculptural artist books, which often look nothing like a traditional book but maintains the temporal, sequential characteristics of a traditional book. It has also led her to creating mezzuzot, covered scrolls, one of the oldest historical book forms which traditionally hang on the doorpost of Jewish homes. Books not meant to be opened.

Judith was one of six-artists in the 2021 Be the Change Cincinnati exhibition.
