J. Jordan Bruns graduated with a BFA in Painting and Illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004 and an MFA in Painting from Indiana University in 2007. Currently, he is the resident artist in the Chautauqua Tower at Glen Echo Park. He has received many awards; most recently, he was a finalist for the Bethesda Painting Awards in 2011 and received an Individual Artist Grant from Montgomery County in 2010. His work can be seen at the Chautauqua Tower and at Longview Gallery, downtown D.C.
I am fascinated with creating dualities; destruction and rebirth, order and chaos, old and new, serious and whimsical. Often what drives the paintings are the paradoxes that are created when these dialectics intertwine.
