【Jordan Kerwick】
Born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1982, Jordan Kerwick is a self-taught artist currently based in Albi, France. He began painting in 2016, rapidly gaining recognition from the international art scene. His oil and, more recently, mixed-media paintings are rendered in muted hues, often featuring a potted plant set against swathes of color and pattern, balanced by graphic elements such as triangles and crosses. The textured impasto – which Kerwick also uses in his more abstract works – creates a flattened pictorial space in his still-lifes, with the inclusion of hand-painted text, cigarettes and stacks of books at times adding touches of humor or grittiness to the image. His solo exhibitions include ‘Sweep the leg, Johnny’, Pt. 2 Gallery (Oakland, 2019); `Diary of an Introvert’, Delphian Gallery (London, 2018); and ‘Outro’, Piermarq (Sydney, 2018). Kerwick has also participated in group exhibitions at Ambacher Contemporary (Munich, 2019), Kunstforeningen Det Ny Kastet (Thisted, 2018), and Anna Zorina Gallery (New York, 2017).
