“The majority of my body of work focuses on representing and documenting my current generation of “twenty-somethings” where mainstream culture and music play a heavy part in how people interact not only each other, but with the camera in social settings. I’ve always loved to paint and capture the “feel good” moments; those moments where figures are caught in the vibe of the music, posing, flirting or caught mid-smile. The things I come into contact with in current culture, music and fashion are combined with my passion for drawing the figure, pattern and light. I hope bring a smile and sense of nostalgia and familiarity to the viewers as they take a visual journey down memory lane, or for my younger viewers: last weekend. My original paintings are done in a subtractive fashion, where I wipe away, etch into and press against the top layers of oil paint to reveal the metallic acrylic underneath. Because of the metallic paints, different lighting situations bring different dimensions to the pieces and allow the viewers to interact with the paintings from different angles and distances.” – J’Nell Jordan
