Artist: Jordan McGirk

Jordan McGirk is an artist working in the Millitzer studios.

McGirk’s work explores the anxious embodiment of western hyper-masculinity, and represents the fragility of living out fragmented ideologies.

His most recent paintings investigate fantasies of power and privilege performed at hardcore and heavy metal shows by posturing young men. The subjects are abstracted and imploded, using their colliding bodies as vehicles for feeling boundless and alive.

McGirk received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art from the University of Illinois in 2009 and his Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art from Washington University in St. Louis in 2011.
