ARTIST STATMENT

Jordan McQuaid's practice is primarily rooted in the process of silk screen printing, but his theoretical practice intends to uproot our preconceived notions of printmaking. His prints have taken the form of interactive portraits (Chalkboards, 2015) and sculptural works (Allegories of Play-doh, 2016).
