Painting as a 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.
Upcoming Online Intensive
Abstraction: Figure as Source
June 2 – 23, 2020
This four-week intensive explores the process of figuration and abstraction. The morning sessions provide demonstrations of working from direct observation with the figure, arriving at objective proportion and structure, as well as experimenting with different ways of investigating the human form. In the afternoon sessions, Jordan will work on one canvas for the duration of the workshop, using the morning drawings and paintings as source material for an ongoing and improvisational discovery of abstract painting.

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.
