Press Release - "Sweep the leg, Johnny" by Jordy Kerwick
pt. 2 Gallery is proud to present Sweep The Leg, Johnny, a solo exhibition of paintings by Melbourne, Australia-based artist Jordy Kerwick. Painting in a process-oriented manner, Kerwick’s style is entirely intuitive, each piece representing a moment of cathartic exploration in mark-making.
This latest series features elements of representational and figurative painting, but made with distinctly rough features that seem to instinctively veer into abstraction. His work reflects a natural draw towards rough, raw aesthetics, celebrating moments of imperfection and breaking free from the constraints of precision. In addition to making art, Kerwick is also a husband and father. Painting serves as his personal outlet for experimentation and rumination in the moments between the undertakings of life. The gallery is located at 1523 b Webster St. and is just blocks away from both 12th & 19th st Bart Stations. Opening receptions at pt.2: are always free and open to the public.
