About the work

This work is part of an ongoing series of watercolours made during the 2020/21 lockdown as an aid to daily meditation.

About the artist:

Born 1982 Rotherham, Harminder Judge lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Northumbria University (2005); and Royal Academy Schools, London (Ongoing).

Judge’s work has engaged with many subjects but there is a continuous exploration of portals, be it spiritual, political, or personal. His performance work has weaved Indian folklore and mysticism with bombastic western pop music and live colour field painting; collided occult inspired dreamscapes with hazy laser penetrated reverse baptisms; and transported field recordings made in his family’s Gurdwara in Punjab across the world, and replayed them through a speaker lodged in his throat.

His most recent body of work engages a history of Indian abstract painting related to tantric ritual – borrowing techniques from Italian fresco and Indian reverse glass painting. Grounded in materiality, these ‘augmented plaster’ pieces are talismanic, transportative, negotiating image and object relations, the physical and metaphysical.

Harminder won the Arts Foundation Fellowship Award in performance art ( 2011 ); and was recently included in Tomorrow:London at White Cube. He has shown work internationally at venues such as Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai; The Sunday Painter, London; Halle 14 Zentrum für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig; and The Royal Academy of Arts, London. In 2020 he co-curated the group exhibition ‘Our ashes make great fertilizer’ at Public Gallery, London. In 2021 Harminder will have solo exhibitions in Paris, Vienna and London.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
