Jordy Kerwick
Australia, b. 1982)

自學藝術家,居住及創作於法國,將日常寫照轉化為畫布上抽象表現,以人物繪畫及圖騰花卉等不同主題,強調雅緻與樸拙共存的衝突美感,創造個人獨特風格。於2016年開啟藝術家生涯便快速引起收藏家關注,於歐美等國擁有豐富的展覽經歷,曾於丹麥Kunstbygningen I Vrå Museum、Det Ny Kastet Museum展出,作品獲眾多私人藏家收藏。


Jordy Kerwick擅長使用複合創作素材,如炭筆、油彩、蠟筆、壓克力,結合現成物的拼接,並以不同繪畫工具塗抹顏料,如油畫刀、舊筆刷,或直接將沙子潑灑至畫布上,增加畫面異質感,擁有自己一套創作的例行公事:早晨打開收音機,泡一杯黑咖啡,進入工作室、搭配音樂開始作畫。自傳式的繪畫靈感來自於生活,音樂、文學、藝術、家庭、城市記憶。受到多位不同領域藝術家的影響與啟發,如著名小說家海明威Ernest Miller Hemingway、法國文學大師西蒙.波娃Simone De Beauvoir等;美國抽象表現主義大師Robert Motherwell、Helen Frankenthaler、Cy Twombly;美國知名創作歌手Bob Dylan等藝文圈重要人物皆為Kerwick創作時不可或缺的靈感泉源。也正因如此,他的作品時常加入文學、音樂的元素,透過他特殊處理異材質與色彩的方式,激盪觀者的美學感知。
