Perhaps as much autobiographical as observational, Jordan Casteel’s paintings are imbued with the tenderness of her gaze. Family, neighbors, patrons – her detailed portraits explore intimacy and the immortalization of her subjects.
Casteel (b. 1989 in Denver, CO) received her B.A. from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA for Studio Art (2011) and her M.F.A. in Painting and Printmaking from Yale School of Art in New Haven, CT (2014). She has been an artist-in-residence at Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY, (2015) Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Process Space, Governors Island, NY, (2015), The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY (2015), and The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, DUMBO, NY (2016). She lives and works in NYC and is represented by Casey Kaplan, NY.
