Buffering in the Danger Zone by Any Means Necessary
June 5, 2018 – July 29, 2018
Jordan Stubbs (b. 1993) lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia and received his BFA in Photography from Georgia State University in 2014. He was a cofounding member of the popular but now-shuttered artist-run project space the LOW Museum and was a 2015-2016 LEAP YEAR fellow. His work spans multiple mediums and currently incorporates mesh, epoxy clay, hardware, and drawing. Through material and formal investigation, Jordan creates visual and haptic metaphors for notions of precarity, closeness, security, mutability, ennui and emotional distress. Framed under an eclipse, dancerly figures, architectural impressions, and flowers languish across his compositions, while lightning strikes and tears or raindrops fall. Jordan has recently shown with: Showerhaus Gallery, the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, MINT Gallery, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, and Suede Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland.
