Jordan Wolfson is often defined as a romantic conceptualist indeed his work tends to subvert material conditions of the art world and question contemporary socio-cultural or religious stereotypes with a great deal of highly strung melancholy, humor or cynicism. Between fact and fiction, Wolfson's practice involves film, text and graphics, sound and animations. The poetic forms arrived at are ambiguous, tautological and often anxiously psychological constructs. He scrutinizes popular culture for his pinpointed iconoclastic artworks. Some of his now famous references are to Charlie Chaplin, Michael Jackson, Christopher Reeve, Rodgers and Hammerstein lyrics, Eric Satie'sGymnopédie, the Semite.
