Kenneth Jordan is a figurative oil-painter, his interest lies in process, and the relationship between drawing and painting is essential. His drawing skills are well established and vibrant, creating within the work a certain tension and tri-dimensionality. This particular relationship is fundamental to the development of his compositions. The process in which his paintings develop is comprised of diverse techniques. The manipulation of brush strokes, glazes, and subtractive methods create a tension between the figures and the setting. Kenneth will receive his BFA in Studio Art from the University of West Florida in 2015. He currently resides in Pensacola, Florida. His work has been exhibited in juried student shows and invitational exhibitions in Pensacola.
