About the Art

What the artist saysMy work explores the fluidity of the physical through fragmented figures and shifting, relational, abstract shapes. Combining paint, sewn canvas, and wooden constructions, I explore the physicality of each medium, combining paint, sewn canvas, and wooden constructions.
Why we like itJordan uses mixed media to harness her vibrant color palette, creating organic forms from the fluidity of her abstract gestures.
Where we hang itWe love hanging these works in a hallway or anywhere you can get up close to see the handcraft of the medium.

About the Artist

Jordan Grace Owens
Jordan Grace Owens is a Durham-based emerging artist who creates abstract, multi-media compositions of fragmented and reassembled shapes. She brings an eye for vibrant color palettes together with an expressive approach to shapes, creating dynamic compositions that suggest a corporeal push and pull. Turning to studio work after a decade-long career in figurative and portrait illustration, Owens’ abstract works explore a fluidity of physical form and probe at the edges of autonomy using shapes that are figurative, shifting, and relational. Much of her work expresses a maternal subjectivity; she works in her studio in the spaces between parenting her two young children.

“I approach my abstract shapes like figures, and I’m interested in exploring the relationships between them; the ways they press against, fold around, and even intrude each upon the boundaries of one another.”
