Harminder Singh Judge Exhibition Nottingham

Among the multiple influences on his recent work, the artist Harminder Singh Judge lists religious and cultural forces such as Buddha, Norwegian death metal, John the Revelator and Jesus. A British-born Sikh with a taste for religious history and rock music, Judge obviously likes to unite disparate elements just to see what aesthetic surprises and stories might arise. His range of creative materials is equally diverse: fibreglass sculpture, sound, neon, drawing, light projection and live performance. So cross associations are conjured between cult ritual, pop posing, mythical symbolism and advertising logos. Perhaps the art lies in the fact that the audience is left unsure whether Judge is presenting a serious message or jokingly taking it for a ride.
