Bo Jordan gives new meaning to the expression, “hand painted.” The Highland Park artist literally finishes 90 percent of her paintings without brushes, using her fingers and palm to apply paint to canvas. Her exhibit, Sophisticated Graffiti: Mixed Media will be on display in the Highland Park Public Library, 31 North Fifth Avenue, from July 1 – July 31.
An art reception will be held for Bo Jordan on Sunday, July 17 from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM.
“All of my work can be considered mixed media,” Jordan said. “I like the chemical reactions mixed media creates in each piece.”
Most of her paintings include latex, enamel and acrylic. Four years ago she developed her hands on technique.
The Brooklyn-born artist has been drawing since she was 12 years old and has been exhibiting in different venues throughout Middlesex County. She has had paintings displayed in Highland Park’s Arts in the Park event, Dunellen’s Festival and in Metuchen’s Art Programs. Over the Moon gift shop in Highland Park sells her art cards. This is her third exhibit at the Highland Park Public Library.
