Jordan Plotnek is an Australian-Brazilian abstract expressionist painter with a permanent studio in Montréal. Inspired by current events, his security research, and his nomadic travels, Plotnek’s work investigates the nature of humanity; exploring themes such as morality, conflict, environmentalism, and existentialism. His work treads the line between captivating and uncomfortable, luring the viewer in and provoking them to engage with their own psyche and question the world around them.
An exploration of the subconscious in relation to specific themes, these intuitive works express emotion through impulsive mark making.
Somewhere between Color Field and Action Painting, these works express emotion and symbolism through bold colours spontaneously layered to build intricate textures.
I had a dream about lanterns floating through a bamboo forest inspired by Jordan’s painting and I just couldn’t get it out of my head. Had to get it.
