Pamela Jorden

Pamela Jorden applies paint in directed, pushed and dragged flows, creating markers through active and physical manipulation of materials. Working on shaped stretchers, Jorden pulls, stretches, and incises linen to wrap around convex and concave curves. Jorden often refers to landscape and qualities of light in her work, associating the exposed areas of linen with the color and texture of the sandy soil of Southern California, where she resides. Fluid and organic, the result is a reassembly of a dynamic surface of shifting focus, conveying the immediacy of granular detail and the vastness of geologic time.
