Jordan Casteel: Within Reach at the New Museum

ID : 9313   
« back to classes page
In her large-scale oil paintings, Casteel has developed a distinctive figurative language permeated by the presence of her subjects, who are typically captured in larger-than-life depictions that teem with domestic details and psychological insights. Portraying people from communities in which the artist lives and works — including former classmates at Yale, where she earned an MFA, street vendors and neighbors near her home in Harlem, and her own students at Rutgers University — Casteel insists upon the ordinary, offering scenes with both the informality of a snapshot and the frontality of an official portrait. Her work connects to the legacy of artists like Alice Neel, Faith Ringgold, and Bob Thompson, among others.
