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.
