Tag: Jordan West

Hailing from Santa Fe, New Mexico, Jordan West is a self taught artist whose paintings depict everyday places- rows of food in eerily empty supermarkets, bathroom stalls, gas stations, and airport terminals- often with a sense of unease and loneliness despite their bright and cheerful palette. In his "Attention All Shoppers" series, painted with gouache on paper, West offers a new perception of a commonplace grocery store, flattening it into a stark world of simple greens, oranges, blues, and yellows, and shapes that borderline abstract.
