“My paintings are intensely labored and constructed. They are not predetermined by sketches, but meticulously pieced together like an evolving puzzle. I think of them as crafted rather than executed,” says Giordano. “I use yarn, glitter, glue, and fragments of paint to create an assembled collage. The segmented stripes within the works originate as long, straight lines of acrylic paint poured on glass. The pours often resemble a flattened rainbow and at the same time they take on the appearance of a frozen abstract painting.”

Jacin Giordano graduated with honors from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1999 with a BFA in painting. He has exhibited widely throughout the United States as well as Mexico, Hong Kong, and France. Recent exhibitions at public institutions include deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, The Miami Art Museum, The Bass Museum of Art, The Harn Museum, and The Frost Museum. Giordano was a 2006 recipient of the South Florida Cultural Consortium Grant for Visual Art. His work is included in the West Collection, The Rubell Family Collection, The Debra and Dennis Scholl Collection, and Perez Art Museum Miami.
