Jordan Dunlop

abstract painting in bright magentas, whites and blues with dripping paint and visible brushstrokes

Pull Tightly, 2016, acrylic on plexiglass, 30″ x 21″ x 1.5″

Peterborough artist, Jordan Dunlop, paints on both the front and reverse side of the picture plane. This method of dual sided painting is described as Dyslexic Alchemy; transforming common paint marks into grand gestures simply by turning the plexiglass around and utilizing both surfaces. Jordan arrived at this method from his natural way of learning and challenges with dyslexia. Jordan’s recent paintings explore gestural abstraction and unconventional mark making, both intentional as well as by chance and error. Jordan paints on reclaimed plexiglass, specifically making use of discarded plexi from the COVID pandemic.
