Jordy Hamilton completed an MFA at the University of British Columbia in 2011. In 2012, he was a finalist in the RBC Painting Competition, as well as in the Contemporary Art Society of Vancouver’s inaugural emerging artist’s prize and was chosen as one of the top ten emerging artist in the VIP MFA Art Fair. Jordy currently lives and works in Vancouver. In his work, painting functions as the primary mode of a multifaceted approach to art making. Sculpture, film, photography and installation have been employed at times alongside a more traditional studio practice. Recent bodies of work have developed around themes such as painting, craft, time, work, desire and escape.
