Jud Wimhurst’s sculptures are like spoilt children.

After their conception he allows them to tell him exactly what they need or want and he sees it as his job to do these things for them. As a firm believer in DIY, research and experimentation is an important part of his practice and if that means sourcing a completely new material and exploring its capabilities or mastering a new technique, or even to make the necessary tools to do a specific job from scratch, so be it.

Conceptually, the sculptures are inspired by consumerism, design, pop culture, mortality and humour - and in particular the point of which these themes may meet or intersect.
