A Native of Ohio, McCreery Jordan has been living in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 1993.
McCreery Jordan seamlessly blends classical principles and abstract clarity to produce paintings of astonishing vigor and luminosity. Painting in oil, Jordan’s color field abstract work is both spirited and layered. The artist is well known as a colorist, using multiple tones of blues, cream and black for her palette. Jordan loosely organizes the canvas surface into various square or rectangular shapes and then applies mark-making and incising techniques to the top surface layer of the painting.
