Thought It Wasn't But It Was
Acrylic on canvas | 2022
Luke Chiswell excels at revealing the interplay between language, meaning, and mis-meaning, and abstracting language to its furthest point in his work. These new works represent the exploration of value disruption and the rejection of the traditionally-linear art-making process. The large paintings transform text from legible to abstract, evoking an intuitive response to mark-making. The result is the creation of a new vocabulary through asemic writing, reflecting the repetitive nature of language and enhancing the possibilities of interpretation.
