Luke Chiswell

Luke Chiswell is an Australian visual artist, now based in Los Angeles, CA. Working with diverse mediums and techniques, primarily abstract painting and sculpture, Chiswell is fascinated by the constraints of materialising place and time. The artist continuously experiments with new processes to capture movement, memorialise moments and represent time. Gathering found materials from a chosen environment, Chiswell creates a language for each work. Having been influenced by his rural upbringing in the small town of Collector in Australia, as well as his involvement in skateboarding culture, the artist’s work is best described as primal and honest, while maintaining an unnerving complexity. Chiswell’s work has been is exhibited across Australia, China and the United States. Recent residencies and public works include Beijing, ‘The Opposite House’ and Nicaragua ‘Maderas Village’ and a 7ft bronze sculpture ‘Hold Your Head Up’ in Belmore Park NSW, Australia.
