Jordan Clayton

Jordan Clayton is an award-winning, emerging, Canadian artist who specializes in painting and drawing.  His work has been exhibited internationally from the very start of his practice and now belongs in several private collections.

 

ARTISTIC INSIGHT
The current objective of his work is to monumentalize the unseen and the unnoticed by exploring the processes and growth of organisms, objects, and ephemera whose existences may or may not exist to the naked eye.  He is interested in restructuring narratives that intersect between art, science, fiction, and queerness in a melange that forecasts a reality only a few degrees separated from the present.  His painted “worlds” employ techniques rooted in abstract and surrealist painting tropes, creating imagery that feels familiar, yet still boarders on the fantastical.
