Full Artist's statement
Inspired by sacred geometry, Jordann Wine draws on classical forms and patterns in her work to reference mathematical concepts that reflect the wonders of the universe. Working with the golden ratio, fractals, and gradients these geometric abstract paintings, drawings and murals connect to notions of deep space in time, as well as deep space found in meditation. Floating, falling, fading and unfolding patterns of triangles and circles mesmerize the viewer, evoking contemplation of the infinite. Seeking order out of chaos, and interrupting rigidity of order with slight imperfections in the repetition is central to the meditative nature of her practice and to the solace it intends to bring out in the hand-drawn imagery.
Along with her work in drawings, paintings and murals, Jordann has evolved her practice by introducing glitter. Glitter, commonly dismissed as an ordinary craft material, is elevated to a painterly standard as she foregrounds the material’s inherent qualities of holding and releasing light. She makes use of the medium’s full range of iridescent, opaque, and translucent color qualities. The childish or garish reputation of glitter changes into a reflective cosmic field inviting the eye to travel into a world of endless possibilities. Transforming this material, she pushes the boundaries of glue and glitter into painting, creating surfaces that activate the eye and bring energy to the spaces they inhabit.
