I am very excited to announce that I am co-curating the first ever UK solo show of one of my favourite contemporary painters Jordy Kerwick.
Diary of an Introvert opens with Delphian Gallery on the 6th of December, join the Facebook event for more info HERE
Last year I exhibited in a show curated by Jordy in Copenhagen, so it’s nice to be able to return the favour.
Delphian Gallery is proud to present ‘Diary of an Introvert’ by Jordy Kerwick (b. 1982). This will be Kerwick’s debut UK solo show. With a substantial Instagram following, he is part of a new generation of internationally renowned artists who attribute part of their success to connecting, sharing, and selling online.
His work draws on the contours of organic forms in domestic settings. Texture and colour inhabit his canvas, often centred on a potted plant. Sometimes traces of human life present themselves in way of an abandoned cigarette or a pile of books, their titles written playfully on their spines almost as if conversing with the viewer. The artist utilises a decisive use of impasto paint in blocks of colour combined with anarchic references to drugs, punk, and the odd romantic poet or philosopher. Kerwick’s paintings go beyond simply beautiful subject matter to reveal deeply personal stories like an inside joke.
Delphian Gallery will be showing Kerwick‘s latest body of work of original paintings, as well as releasing his first ever limited edition prints.
Private view – 6th December 6-9pm
Exhibition runs 7th – 16th December.
