“Jordan Azcune has an incredible command of colour. Growing up queer in a religious household, Jordan’s work explores abstraction, colour theory, and camp aesthetics filtered through biblical theology and personal experience. Primarily working in beeswax and pigment, Jordan makes every aspect of the work himself, including the brass frames (with some help with the legendary Lincoln Austin). Both aesthetically pleasing and conceptually compelling, his works pack a powerful punch. He’s also amazing at ikebana.”
