Jordan Richardson

Jordan Richardson’s paintings take breath from an observation of art conservation. The material quality of old paint, its tackiness and elasticity is a daily obsession that drives his painting practice and informs a strategy for paint application.

Richardson’s current work investigates the processes of portraiture, with a depth of pentimenti, excavations of paint layers and the build up of translucent glazes and gestural marks.

Richardson was a finalist in the Archibald Prize 2017, 2018 and 2019, and he has been twice highly commended in the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art scholarship in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Richardson holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (Hons) from the National Art School, Sydney.
