COUNTRY by Gerry Judah

About

Leading contemporary installation artist and sculptor Gerry Judah challenges us to explore our understanding of war, conflict, peace, natural disasters and devastation in a solo exhibition, COUNTRY. The exhibition is co-curated by independent curator Jenny Blyth, and Kate Pryor-Williams. Gerry Judah's work is a direct response to landscapes of destruction whether the result of war or climate change. His paintings are inspired by conflict - particularly in the Middle East whether Iraq, Afghanistan or Gaza, showing global concerns for the environment and the decimation that follows natural disasters such as the flooding of New Orleans in 2005, and the recent Australian bushfires. He recreates scenes of ruined settlements that we witness daily as reported by the media. Urban landscapes, constructed from cut out buildings, complete with internal structures, communication wires and water towers are fixed onto canvas, and then systematically destroyed. The rubble and debris are fused onto a background of empty white canvas with layers of acrylic gesso to create ‘white on white' abstract paintings. A free guide will be available in the gallery to run alongside this exhibition. Also see http://www.gerryjudah.com for further details.
