Sandra Gayle Jordan, New York City Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement Jordan studied art at New York's famous Art Student League. She studied anatomical drawing with the famous artist Gustav Rehberger, through whom, "I learned to see as well as sense the life and motion in the human form. Gary Faigan gave me the structure and the wonderful Michael Burban the joy and sense of accomplishment. Through Richard Goetz I learned to see form, colors and composition. Hilary Holmes gave me a knowledge of the palette and the discipline necessary to paint realism, while Nelson Shanks taught me the difference between sketching and painting a portrait. Thomas Fogarty and Oldrich Teply taught me to see and express freely what I saw and gave me the faith in myself not to doubt my abilities. The famous abstract artist, Richard Pousette-Dart gave me an understanding of abstract thought and emotion. This understanding gave me the freedom to express my feelings in abstract form on canvas."
Jordan has had numerous art shows in the states as well as abroad. Her works hang in collections around the world. Jordan’s psychic impressionist portraits have made her a favorite of the celebrity world and her visionary paintings and impressionist florals have been shown in New York City's most famous galleries, Jordan was one of the few artists chosen to be represented by the world famous Grand Central Gallery until its recent close.
