JORDAN MAX

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

Represented Artist 2014-2016

My work is about expressing space. I find myself drawn to organic shapes that are flexible enough to bend and move through space - a cactus, a road, telephone wires. My work is not symbolic. I use certain objects because they express a visual idea, not a symbolic one.

About Jordan Max:

Jordan Cooperman was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Jordan is a self taught artist working in Greenpoint, Brooklyn primarly with oil paint. He is interested in creating concise work that aims to make a direct statement rather than using symbols to express an idea. He has a vivid image of open spaces, and often works with the desert as a means to express this.

Jordan studied art at the Pennsylvania State University between 2005 and 2011. He is heavily inspired by artists that work to impress a deep mood or feeling upon spaces, including Chaim Soutine, David Lynch, Francis Bacon, and Gertrude Abercrombie. Jordan has exhibited his work in various places, including Art Helix, The Greenpoint Gallery, and Vanderbilt Republic.
