Jordan Redell, I Was Just Thinking That, 11 x 14” (2016)
Woodblock and Silkscreen
Jordan Redell sees opportunity in opposition. By layering dynamic mark making with pattern, her abstract constructions inhabit a space where complexity and disorder can allude to a wisdom of natural unity. Her work nurtures authenticity by acknowledging the tensions present between seemingly conflicting aesthetic characteristics. A ceramacist turned printmaker, Redell’s choices in medium reflect her interest in histories of craftspersonship and the behavior of art objects as they relate to our ideas of asperity and simplicity.
