Jordan Dunlop

I understand painting/drawing to be a continuous process of producing, reacting to, and evaluating successes and failures. The dichotomies between marks, moments or gestures perceived as strong versus weak are pivotal to my painting practice. A completed artwork is a recorded experiment allowing both failures and successes to reveal themselves. This open structure of producing, allows Jordan freedom to experiment and utilize chance to create new forms of understanding.

Initial starting points to any creative attempts arise through the act of walking. Nomadic practices of walking and sojourns have been a creative source to create from. The combination of Isolation, movement, discovery and place have resulted in euphoria and what can be described as transcendent visioning has altered the common gaze in exchange for personal and symbolic one’s which the artist cites for his outsider style and approach to creating artwork.
