About:

Jordan Clayton is an award-winning artist who specializes in painting and drawing.  His work has been exhibited internationally from the very beginning of practice and is internationally collected by both private and corporate collectors

 

His work monumentalizes the unseen, the unnoticed, and the alien.  He integrates technology, machine learning, collage, and painter’s hand to construct surrealist spaces that bear a Kafkaesque melancholy.  Influenced by nature’s eeriest creatures, both sympatric to and outside of anthropogenic life, he develops the organic into the composited uncanny.  These spaces connect to a broader, undiscovered narrative that integrate art, technology, science fiction, and queerness.  Borne out of dysphoria experienced living in society, Clayton harnesses darkness to find beauty and whimsicality in the grotesque.
