"Our original plaster castings, inspired by local storm drain covers, proclaim that our river's health is key to our local community's existence. We design the images using natural and man-made residue found while cleaning up our river's environment. Our work embodies the necessity of keeping our waterways clean and healthy."
Judith and David have been collaborating since November 2016. They have produced several commercial commissions together including: 10 plaster fresco murals for Joie Clothing Boutique, which are installed in retail stores across the country, as well as a 500 square foot “Urban Fossil” (cement / plaster installation) for Current/Elliott Flagship Fashion Boutique on Fillmore Street in San Francisco. Their collaborative works have led to the current “Modern Fossil” series. Together, Judith and David have exhibited in numerous solo and group shows, have received several awards, have been guest lecturers, and have amassed a large following of loyal Modern Fossils fans.
