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.Â The artist comes from a long line of collectors, and her paintings reflect this proclivity towards amassing objects.Â On Create Magazine sheÂ says this about her work:
â€œMy 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.â€
â€œPainting 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.â€
