Portfolio Archive > Jordan Quintero: Irrationalism

'This selection of matte, surface-oriented work from 2010-present presents a case for the artist's work being primarily concerned with gestural, primal, instinctive mark-making. There seems to be a consistent deviation from rationality; moments of brilliant representation are hand in glove with interrupted illusions, a cell- phone-at-the-opera disrespect for politeness, rationality, prettiness, and other pristine western aesthetic traditions. However, through his soulful dedication to pure instinct and intuition, the meta-and-subconscious zeitgeist of the early internet age is boldly and energetically declared, and Quintero's finished works transcend the rudeness of their age, and become celebratory, as much as they are defiant (and elegiac) of the high art of the hitherto defunct Western canon, in favor of a celebration of space, of wildness, of an amor fate that links him as much to the existentialism of mid century modernists as it does to the street art of Banksy.'
