NoBo Art Center Exhibit: Jordan Espinoza

March 1 - March 30

Jordan Espinoza: Photography & Paintings

Exhibit Opening: First Friday, March 1st 6-9 pm

Artist Statement:

My favorite art mediums are photography and painting. Throughout my life, I have experienced through death the loss of many people that mattered to me. I strive to make sense out of these losses by recreating memories through photographing old pictures and objects. I believe that old is not less beautiful and should be appreciated.  I also cherish the idea that photography helps me show people what they may never get a chance to see or feel through their own experiences.

I use painting to express emotions. I use this medium for all emotions, and at times what I put on a canvas is surprising, but this helps me view the emotion from a different perspective.  My paintings often involve a lot of color, but I dont see color in the same way others do. Colors and the tools I use to present them are functions of my emotions. 

The combination of painting and photography intertwines and connects to help me understand the world.  My photos are generally clear and crisp, illustrating things as they are. My paintings, on the other hand, describe the inner workings of clarifying what is.
