Painting as a Life Practice.
In its myriad variety of touch and form, Painting embodies and expresses Consciousness. This ancient and contemporary activity interweaves our awareness and reveals our inherent interbeing.

PAINTING and CONSCIOUSNESS: an interview
Jordan Wolfson speaks openly about his development as a painter, the relationship between art and spirituality in his life, as well as some of his current projects, including his recently released book, Painting and Consciousness. The book is a mix of various thoughts and musings — part inquiry into the relationship of painting and Consciousness, and part, in light of that inquiry, practical suggestions related to a painting journey.
"PAINTING and CONSCIOUSNESS": A Book.
“I have a desire to mark — to take material and mark on a surface. I have a desire to see, to look clearly at what I am seeing, to receive fully and clearly what I am seeing, and then to make a mark, many marks, in relation to what I am seeing…”
This book is a mix of various thoughts and musings — part inquiry into the relationship of painting and Consciousness, and part, in light of that inquiry, practical and pedagogical suggestions related to a painting journey. It is not an attempt at a definitive statement and conclusion, but rather simply my thoughts and experiences that I wish to share as an offering, with the hopes of leading to others’ own creative engagement – my contribution, today, to the greater good as I understand it.
Between Form & Non-Form
Jordan Wolfson is a contemporary artist investigating the relationships between perception, marking, and consciousness through the lens of observational representation. ‘What is presence and how does it become embodied in pictorial form?’ ‘What is the nature of this human depth-activity we call painting?’

The Craft, Art & Way of Painting
Perception, Marking, Awareness
In a local sense, The Painting Project is an artist’s studio and the location, in Boulder, Colorado, of instruction in the art of painting. In the largest sense, The Painting Project is the contemporary and ancient human engagement with hand-made marking and imagery — in which this instruction is playing its small but necessary part.
Our focus is on the classical and modern traditions of drawing and oil painting, within the context of our contemporary situation and currents. We are committed to the enduring power of painting as a depth human activity which affords an indispensable exploration of ways of being.
A Contemporary Form For Art’s Reception
A “Concurrence” is an hour-long event designed for communal reception and sharing of visual art. Inspired by Slow Art Day, a Concurrence is a contemporary form working to recontextualize visual art back towards its mythic and ritual origins of communal meaning and nurturance.
An Online Painting Collaborative
What if a painting isn’t just a painting? What if a painting actually is a catalyst, an interface, of an energetic exchange between the painter and the viewer? What if a painting, in truth, is a transmitter of the essential human experience of being?
Tapistry is an online painting collaborative that recontextualizes painting, not philosophically, but actually.
