DESCRIPTION

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.

Luke Chiswell

About the Process

Chiswell's Trophies Series

To make works from his "Trophies" series, Chiswell skates on a skateboard until it breaks. During each skating session he repeats a specific word, like "try" or "best" to himself. When the board breaks, Chiswell considers it then a "Trophy" and the word he repeated is carved into it.
