Judah’s equal parts ominous and alluring three-dimensional paintings take war and destruction as their subject, giving us in dramatic aerial view. He lovingly builds his unlovable buildings with model-maker’s care only to deconstruct the resulting forlorn, innards-spewing wrecks with equally meticulous destructiveness. The monochrome, painterly alloverness of these architectural funerary portraits is aestheticizing, almost indeed ethereal, despite their ash-strewn sense of doom. And yet Judah’s chromophobia also operates non-metaphorically, sparking stark associations of grainy satellite images. The destruction detailed is remote and visceral, dainty and monumental, abstract and chillingly real.
