Fitzroy Gallery Present Country, a Solo Exhibition of New Work by Gerry Judah     
The rubble and debris are fused onto a background of empty canvas with layers of acrylic gesso to create monochrome and quasi-abstract compositions.
NEW YORK< NY.- Fitzroy Gallery presents Country, a solo exhibition of new work by London-based artist Gerry Judah, which is comprised of six large-scale monochrome paintings. This is Gerry Judah’s first exhibition in the United States and is on view until January 29 2011.

Judah’s work is a direct response to landscapes of destruction and explores war, conflict, peace, natural disasters and devastation. Urban landscapes, constructed from buildings, complete with internal structures, communication wires and water towers are fixed onto canvas, and then systematically destroyed resulting in frozen vignettes of silence and loss.

The rubble and debris are fused onto a background of empty canvas with layers of acrylic gesso to create monochrome and quasi-abstract compositions. The white on white, black on black and red on red constructions are epic in scale and story.

The paintings, based on aerial photography, are inspired by conflict - particularly in the Middle East, whether it be in Iraq, Afghanistan or Gaza. Judah’s work also reflects 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.

Gerry Judah was born in Calcutta, India in 1952, and studied art at Barnet College of Art. In 1970, he obtained a First-Class Honors degree in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London, and studied sculpture as a postgraduate at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London.

Judah transgresses the traditional boundaries of the gallery space, utilizing the democratic nature of the public arenas of theatre, film, television and museums. His innovative work includes sets for BBC, Channel Four, British Museum, Natural History Museum, Imperial War Museum, and for artists including Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, and The Who. He has also produced sculptures for Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, Jaguar, Mercedes Benz, Rolls Royce and Alfa Romeo at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed, and has designed bridges in London and Cambridge.

Judah has had solo exhibitions and projects at Louise T. Blouin Foundation, London, Imperial War Museum, Manchester, and the British High Commission, Delhi.
