Figuratively speaking is a solo exhibition featuring the portraiture of Jerry Jordan. Jordan’s work embodies a very personal quality both to himself and to the subjects, who are often depicted in fleeting moments of concentration, deeply carried away in a daydream or on occasion directly confronting the viewer with a captivating gaze accompanied by a smirk. Jordan has a way of transforming such brief moments into worlds of their own that invite the viewer in to experience those moments with his subjects. Jerry Jordan has successfully utilized his skill in classical representative painting and created fresh, approachable contemporary portraits.
Jerry Jordan is a Recruiter at UW-Madison and a graduate of UW-Whitewater with a BA in Fine Art and his MS in Curriculum and Instruction with emphasis in Art Education. His work has been featured on occasion on the cover of Madison publication, UMOJA and has been shown at Overture Center for the Arts, School of Education Gallery at UW-Madison and Commonwealth Gallery among others.
Marƶeń came to fruition in the fall of 2014 as Madison, Wisconsin’s premier fine art gallery, opened by Margaret LeMay. The innovative space is a hub for the creative, hosting regionally and nationally renowned artists. Our objective is to share this high level of artwork with the public.
