Jordy Kerwick is a self-taught Australian painter who lives and works in Albi, France. Being influenced by depictions of still life in modern art, he is recreating the familiar feeling of domestic warmth in a contemporary setting. His mixed media approach consists of the heightened use of oil brushstrokes, spray-paint and collage, while including elements of sketching. His pictorial references of common objects, such as lamps, plants and rugs are fused with the intense energy of his patterned animals. What is intentionally omitted in depth, is cleverly replaced by bold color combinations and thick outlines.Kerwick has exhibited in Sydney, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Copenhagen, Cologne, Hamburg and Tokyo. His works are also included in collections all around the world. The artwork "Seattle Drop" is one of Jordy Kerwick's series of still-life works. Inspired by Matisse's bold use of color, the artist utilizes a large amount of vibrant red and geometric shapes to create lively and dynamic imagery, giving a new interpretation to the traditional still-life subject matter.
