Jordan Devlin is a Scottish-Australian artist currently based in Melbourne(Naarm). His work looks to infuse the physical and emotional aspects of traditional painting, with a wealth of modern, historic and mythic allusion. The work seeks to present and encourage immediate and introspective experiences, through the collection and transformation of materials and artefacts. Many of the materials used are found discarded in the local environment; the work questions why and breathes new life into otherwise redundant objects.
‘Creation Myth’ seeks to explore the inner and outer curiosity of the individual. Abstract forms serve as a metaphor for a simpler time - akin to stone carvings or drawings on pottery. An unspoken language for people organically interested in similar things: Art, nature, technology, community, and progression.
