Philip Larkin famously loved jazz because it was an art form that needed little to no explanation in order to be enjoyable. Jordy’s work is like jazz: a chaotic, heady blend of motion and freedom delivered with knowing wit, humour and tradition. Most importantly, it’s totally attainable. His palette is instantly recognisable, the primary colours used within it are the first we learn as children and the subjects are things we know and love: people, plants, automobiles, figures with spectacles and curly hair surrounded by shapes we associate with joy: swirls, loops, squiggles, corkscrews, sun.
