Jordan Richardson
The King and The Fool

14 Sep - 1 Oct 2016

Jordan Richardson’s paintings take breath from an observation of art conservation. The material quality of old paint, its tackiness and elasticity is a daily obsession that drives his painting practice and informs a strategy for paint application. Richardson’s current series takes the form of court portraiture where a dialogue between the King and his Fool is presented through various pentimenti, excavation of paint layers as well as the build up of translucent glazes and gestural marks.

A finalist and highly commended in the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art scholarship in 2014 and 2015 respectively, Richardson graduated with Honours from the National Art School in 2015.
