She embodies the personas of artist, art dealer, curator and gallery director all in one Jordan Faye Block body. Being just ones of these professionals poses difficult shoes to fill, but she some how makes it work in stilettos.
Jordan's work and life are about making connections. Her subject matter stems from her fascination with fishnet stockings and ripples in water. This imagery is a metaphor for the delicate expansion and growth she wishes to achieve as a person.
For example, it takes the simplest of threads to build an intricate gridded pattern into a stocking. It takes the smallest pebble's drop into a pond to create an ever flowing stream of ripples. It takes the simplest of repeated human interactions to create a community. It is through these human connections that we are able to be nurtured as people, creators and business.
Many people may be more familiar with Jordan's work as a Curator/Art Dealer, but she is herself an artist at heart. She currently works out of Load of Fun studios on North Ave. There she runs the downstairs gallery, The Lof/t, and also works as a painter on the second floor.
Jordan's paintings and prints will be on display through May 25th.
