Jerico Contemporary was pleased to present Luke Chiswell's debut solo exhibition with the gallery, ‘Wish It Would Last’. The show opened on January 18th and continued through to February 9th, 2019. 

LA-based, Australian artist Luke Chiswell's practice spans both painting and sculpture where writing and language serve as a foundation. The artist's work has a gestural vocabulary in which line, word and mark is infused with energy and meaning. The words meaning move from legible to abstract structure for an intuitive response to the mark making. The use of scale and crop are crucial and sayings of interest never fully completed.

For his exhibition ‘Wish It Would Last’, Chiswell's series of paintings applying his characteristic action painting style to push the concept further, experimenting with language, text and meaning. Forming words onto canvas of found materials, creating line-based compositions allowing narrative and language to emit from abstract notations.

In addition to his paintings, Chiswell has produced a single sculptural piece for the exhibition. An aluminium skateboard that derives from the artist's 'Trophy Series' that references destruction and resurrection.
