Jordy Kerwick

Jordan Kerwick is a self-taught Australian artist. Kerwick’s dense impasto brushstrokes flatten the perception of space; instead it is his thick application of paint that offers dimension and texture. He explores the relationship between thick patches of color and form while incorporating recurring elements of iconography such as contours of palm trees and anchors as a means of fusing painting and sketching. These intuitive and enticingly tactile marks celebrate artists’ role of investigating the inherent potential of his chosen media of oil paint.
