Jordan Kasey is a wisp of a person who paints her physical opposites.
Voluptuous figures squeeze onto huge canvases. Like elephants in a clown car, their rounded Botero-esque forms mass together. The tight cropping, which helps the composition evade any common narrative, is more common to contemporary photography than figurative painting.
Painted in crisp reds, brilliant blues, and dust-storm whites, Kasey creates monumental surreal scenes that suck you in, and make you feel a little bit strange.
Born in Chicago, studying in Baltimore, Jordan Kasey has lived in New York since 2013. If you're in Miami later this year, Jordan has a solo show at Michel Jon gallery coming up.
