"Often my work includes water, representing a metaphorical character in the narrative. I paint to challenge myself, express my feelings and connect to others. It’s important that my art is my own creation. I start with thumbnails, plan complex photo shoots and finally, begin to paint."
Jessica Gordon is an American painter focusing on narrative figurative works. Jessica sought a creative outlet that led her to pick up a paintbrush for the first time. She fell in love with the idea of creating something entirely her own. Self-taught, she is paving her way, giving the viewer an insight into her mind and creative instincts. Since 2014, Jessica’s work has been found in multiple publications and selected for numerous shows throughout the United States. Selected in 2019 by American Art Collector's editor Joshua Rose for Painting Now as one of "Today’s most exciting painters in representational art”.
Jessica was awarded Honorable Mention in the ground breaking 2019 Bennett Prize. Two of Jessica’s paintings were awarded Finalist in the 14th International Art Renewal Center Salon Competition and A New Hope was chosen for Spectrum 2019 at the Hunter Museum of American Art.
Appreciative of the merited paintings she has created, Jessica looks forward to developing a thoughtful and continuously growing fine art career. Sharing her work has become a passion that drives her. Jessica resides in Davidson, NC with her husband and two children. She is represented by Robert Lange Studios in SC.
