JUD WIMHURST 'GIMME FREEDOM (OR GIMME DEATH)' BENDIGO ART GALLERY 5 November 2016 - 12 February 2017

Jud Wimhurst is the Bendigo Art Gallery 2016 Going Solo artist.  In his predominantly three-dimensional work, Jud references pop and street culture as a mode of social commentary exploring ideas of consumption, choice and mortality. He is process-driven, hand building, casting and applying slick commercial finishes to objects in his home studio. 'GIMME FREEDOM (OR GIMME DEATH)' is a major sculptural installation combining the iconography of fast food with the tactics of warfare, utilising humour to draw attention to the darker side of consumerism and the artifice of freedom.
