Jordan Buschur is an artist, educator and curator currently residing in Lincoln, Nebraska. She received an M.F.A. from Brooklyn College, the City University of New York. The artist comes from a long line of collectors, and her paintings reflect this proclivity towards amassing objects. On Create Magazine she says this about her work:
“My paintings implant ordinary objects with psychological meanings, implying a human presence through depictions of accumulated collections. These collections, ranging from books to junk drawers to packed boxes, focus on the oscillation between private meaning and public presentation.”
“Painting the array of collected objects in a drawer is an act of meditation on my relationship with the owner, as I dwell on the mundane details of their accumulated junk. Yet the paintings stop short of functioning as a portrait of an individual through their amassed objects. Instead, the collections point towards the material weight of modern life, the anxiety of consumption, and the anonymity of personal effects.”
