About the Item

Elizabeth Jordan is an artist working primarily in sculpture and whose work uses multiple materials to produce unique, organic forms. In addition to a solo and group shows at Ivy Brown Gallery, she has exhibited at The American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Nassau County Museum of Art, The Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach, Florida and the New York Artists Equity Gallery. In 2023, she received a 2023 Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts in sculpture, and in 2022 was awarded the Alex J. Ettl Grant from the National Sculpture Society. She was born in New Jersey and has lived in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Florida and New York, and currently resides and has a studio in Bayonne, NJ. My work helps me to leave the problems of life and reality behind and dwell in a very private place. Taking the form of sculptural animal figures, these pieces are reminiscent of characters in a fable, though one without an ethical theme. They represent my emotions, fears and fascination with the world around me. Evolving from the inside out, they use processes of repetitive winding, wrapping, layering, distorting, altering and scarring. While their appearance can be harsh looking, they create their own definition of beauty. The process of constructing them includes relinquishing control and allowing then to evolve into forms whose species are sometimes hard to pinpoint. Through gestures and poses they mimic the strengths and weaknesses of human beings. Their anthropomorphic nature coaxes the viewer into finding their own intimate connection to each piece. The animals may seem dark, but they are not humorless. They have a request: please pay attention to their gestures, positions, cuts and scars. Through them they portray animals living in a human world. Their appearance tells of the moment of surrender to the inevitable, and it reveals their secret stories of the ephemeral nature of life.
