Basic Facets of Humanity in the Artworks of Sydnei SmithJordan
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Sydnei SmithJordan in Breaking with Realism. The exhibition opens September 2, 2017 and runs through September 22, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, September 7 from 6-8 pm.
Rising above a tumultuous childhood, Sydnei SmithJordan has channeled her pain and strife into a powerful and imaginative art form. In a distinctive style brimming with technical prowess, SmithJordan’s paintings deal with the basic facets of humanity such as religion, culture, sex, and politics, exploring how they relate to and define the individual. Employing a limited palette, her works provide an immediacy of expression, while beckoning the viewer to examine them deeper. Figures and faces confront the audience, peering out to unabashedly display their fundamental character. Applying the same rigor with which she investigates society, SmithJordan daringly delves into the inner regions of herself. “I reach deep into all that is true in myself and my unconscious mind; be they experience, dreamscapes or the past.” Also known for her illustrative work, SmithJordan studied Fine Art at the College of Design, Art, and Architecture at Santa Monica College and earned her Master’s Degree at the Rhode Island School of Design. She lives and works in New Jersey.
