Harminder Judge

Overview

Harminder makes transportive sculptural works that simultaneously reference an Indian tradition of Neo tantric painting, as well as the abstract expressionist and colourfield movements of the 20th century which push the boundaries of what painting can be.

Imbued with an indelible vibrancy and depth, Harminder Judge (b.1982, Rotherham, UK) makes transportive sculptural works that simultaneously reference an Indian tradition of Neo tantric painting, as well as the abstract expressionist and colourfield movements of the 20th century which push the boundaries of what painting can be. His heavily laboured process involves layering pigments into pools of wet plaster followed by prolonged periods of excavation in the form of sanding, oiling and polishing.  This excavation allows for revelatory transformations to take place with colour, forms, and compositions gradually appearing and intensifying over time. This alchemical process results in a gleaming, vibrating surface which has a dematerialising effect on the solid granite-like depth beneath. Referring to his work not as paintings, but as portals, what we are ultimately left with is an expansive, unfathomable plane to look through allowing for a much wider contemplation to take place.
