"My art is both a reflection of and a reaction to my society. Through the act of painting, I aim to create striking pieces of art that provoke debate, thought, and emotion. Painting has always been the most natural way for me to express myself. Working in oil paints, I use the female form to explore themes of self and identity, as well as notions of inner beauty."
"Balance" oil on canvas, 48”x72” 2014 Jordan Clarke
“Balance” expresses the proud, empowered, Black female of the future. Occupying boundless space and independent of technology, she is a strong, powerful, grounded woman who is fully connected to the life and universal energy surrounding her.
