Gerry Judah

3D Paintings and Sculptures

Gerry Judah (born 30 July 1951) is a British artist and designer who has created settings for theatre, film, television, museums and public spaces. He has recently returned to his fine art roots with highly acclaimed contemporary paintings exploring the effects of war and environmental catastrophes on the urban landscape which have entered a number of international private and public collections.

Gerry 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. It is hard to look at his work without reflecting on conflict in the Middle East whether that be Afghanistan, Iraq or recent months in Gaza. There are also echoes of the devastation ensuing from climate change wrought by hurricanes, tsunamis, flooding and bushfires that remind us of New Orleans underwater, or the aftermath of the tsunami in the Asian Basin. Although on first inspection, Judah’s epic landscapes articulate global concerns for peace, he acknowledges the dangers of man’s impact on a finely balanced global ecology, and the decimation that unravels as we exploit the planet with an ever growing appetite.

You know, 2AM, awake, listening to Tori.

It’s not raining cats, it’s not raining dogs
And pigs are not flying, or turning the cogs
The sun has no hat on, whenever it shines

And I’ve never seen a cat with nine lives

I’m not in a film, I’m not in a play
I saw no aliens today
I just saw you, and thought of me

And if I had you, all the stars wouldn’t fall from the sky, and the moon wouldn’t start to cry
There’d be no earthquakes
I’d still make mistakes
If I had you
Oh there’d still be day and night, and I’d still do wrong and right
Ooh
Blue would still be blue
But things would be easier with you

And this is no palace, the place that I live
And I am no king, but I’ve got things to give
And I waste so much time, thinking of time
And I should be out there, claiming what’s mine
Any day I could die, just like I was born
And this bit in the middle is what I’m here for
And I just want to fill it all with joy

And if I had you, all the stars wouldn’t fall from the sky, and the moon wouldn’t start to cry
There’d be no earthquakes
I’d still make mistakes
If I had you
Oh there’d still be night and day, and we’d all still have to pay
Ooh
Blue would still be blue
But things would just be easier with you

Shintaro Ohata  Seamlessly Blends Sculpture and Canvas to Create 3D Paintings

When first viewing the artwork of Shintaro Ohata up close it appears the scenes are made from simple oil paints, but take a step back and you’re in for a surprise. Each piece is actually a hybrid of painted canvas and sculpture that blend almost flawlessly in color and texture to create a single image.

Wookjae Maeng  ( Korean ) - Ceramics and Slip Casting

The theme of my work is to represent complex, ambiguous and uncomfortable
relationships between man and animal. Nature and animals has been an object of art  for a long time. And, it will be continued until the fall of human being,although the point of view has been changed. There are lots of living creatures on the earth.

The human is on the top of the ecological pyramid now and can manage all kinds of our fellow creatures. However, it is getting worse for certain.
