Altogether Christopher Jordan is a person made up of tensions. As a decedent of black slaves and the son of a pastor, he is fascinated with spiritual reclamation; in other words, how minoritized peoples reappropriate religion of oppressors into spirituality of empowerment. Furthermore as a believer, as a muralist, and as an individual who rejects heteronormative identity, he is intrigued by the social conditions which orient our cultural responses toward difference.
Through these intersections Jordan has come to embody perspectives that many might consider discordant or contrary. Rather than modeling diversity through simplistic fantasies of harmony, his artwork reframes conflict as focal points for future solutions.
