“The residents requested that, as the area has short hours of sunlight in winter, they’d like to bring in as much light as possible,”

Gerry Judah - Paintings (2005-12)
“Judah’s paintings are a direct response to conflict across the globe, and the impact of that violence, whether it is the consequence of war or natural disaster. At the same time, he is fascinated by changing urban landscape, and his paintings explore the dynamic of construction and destruction.

The ensuing rubble and detritus are scattered and fused onto a background of empty white canvas with layers of acrylic gesso to create silent ‘white on white’ abstract paintings.”
