Artist Statement: My studio is a place of expression, solitude, emotion, playfulness, tedium, escape from reality, light-heartedness, and devotion and obsession. It is a haven where I can leave life and the world behind. My work is the expression of a conversation I have with myself, where a long thread of thoughts connect ideas, memories, and emotions with shapes, materials, and associations.
Elizabeth Jordan is a Brooklyn, NY artist who works primarily in sculpture. In combining found objects and ordinary industrial materials with unique hand-made processes, Jordan’s work is able to make a connection between the beauty and grimness that cohabit the natural world. The quirkiness of materials and methods create a haunting and humorous roadmap to the ephemeral and transitory nature of life and death. Always concerned with opposites, Jordan reminds us that life is a circle with no real beginning and no real end.
