Born in 1978
Live and work in Easthampton
Jacin Giordano was born in 1978 in Stamford, Connecticut; he grew up in Miami, FL. After graduating with honors from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in 1999 with a BFA in painting, Jacin moved back to Miami and began exhibiting throughout the United States as well as Mexico, Hong Kong and France. He recently returned to school as an MFA candidate at UMass, Amherst in Massachussets. Although his work can sometimes blur the line between painting and sculpture, Jacin identifies his work through the lens of painting and is primarily interested in deconstructing and reconfiguring possibilities within painting. His work is the result of experimentation and a constant exploration of material, texture and process.
