Jack Bidewell (b. 1994) was born in Cambridge, UK and he currently lives and works in London. In 2018, Bidewell graduated with a BA and MA in Fashion from the University of the Arts in London. Jack Bidewell creates works across a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, text and photography. In his work, Bidewell aims to explore what cannot be expressed in words through the language of abstract painting and sculpture. Bidewell’s practice is rooted in his autobiographical experiences and studies into the human condition, exploring human psychology in relation to a visual language. The artist applies the practice of sketching as a way to think, thereby welcoming the accidental, display layering and mark making. Hence, Bidewell emphasises the value of sketching by using large canvases and sculptures as drawings in a notebook.
