MILAN.- Massimo De Carlo
announced that its now representing Jordan Casteel.
Jordan Casteel (b. 1989, Denver, Colorado) lives and works in New York City. In her larger-than-life, colorful oil portraits and cropped compositions, Casteel has developed a painting language centered around community engagement. Guided by intuition and psychological insights, the paintings feature interior and exterior scenes from the intimacy of a subject's home to a crowded subway car. Sourcing compositions from her own photographs, Casteels paintings reflect the sensory and human experience of everyday life. Her brushstrokes are determined, bold swathes of color, nodding to the history of portraiture while pushing forward multifaceted notions of individuality, gender, race, legacy, belonging, and community.
Jordan Casteel solo exhibitions include: Within Reach, New Museum, New York (2020, curated by Massimiliano Gioni); Returning the Gaze, Denver Art Museum (2019, curated by Rebecca Hart) and Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University (201920). She has participated in several group exhibitions at prestigious institutions such as San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA (2020); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2020); Kunsthal KAdE, Amersfoort, Netherlands (2020); Baltimore Museum of Art, MD (2019); Aïshti Foundation, Beirut (2019); Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, AR (2018); MoCA, Los Angeles (2018); MASS MoCA, North Adams, Massachusetts (2017); and The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York (2017; 2016).
