Cordeaux held another solo exhibition at the Canterbury Society of Arts Gallery, Christchurch, in 1986. Daze of Our Lives comprised 12 paintings in gouache and wax-resist on paper.
Cordeaux wrote:“In between bringing up a young child and running a household, I try to record daily events, both mundane and out-of-the-ordinary. However, life often seems to hurtle past, leaving me reeling in its wake – hence the title of my latest series of works, ‘The Daze of Our Lives’.”
Pat Unger, reviewing the exhibition for The Press (2 September 1986) commented:
“Judith Cordeaux … paints with a controlled casualness that indicates a continuing maturity of style…"
“Keeping explicit shapes awash with a pleasing vagueness, her two-dimensional designs have a degree of freshness, a subtlety of tone and sensitivity to paint that speak of advancement…"
“This small exhibition allows Cordeaux to record and control visually, the mundane and unusual events in her life. Her personal imagery is of interest and her method of work is modestly innovative and appealing.”
