“To Build: to simplify” an exhibition by Jordan Miller will open in the main gallery at Prairie Fusion Arts & Entertainment on Sept. 24.
“This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of my grandmother, Virginia Miller. She was one of the most influential people in my art career from the beginning. She loved the arts was on the board of directors of Portage District Arts Centre (1980s) as president, vice-president and chair.” says Miller.
For this exhibition, To Build: To Simplify, Jordan reworked several previously completed artworks. Words, lines, complex structures and a more cohesive mix are what separates this show from past exhibitions. This process took Jordan to new places by simplifying the process, leaving ‘white negative space’ or building layers of ink, acrylics, image transfers, or by painting over pouring medium art. Glimpses of the layers below, or using the texture from the past work, enhance the piece and show the change in thought or experience. For the most part, her colour vibrancy has reverted to more muted tones. Others remain bold and intense.
Prairie Fusion Arts & Entertainment invites the public for a free opening reception of To Build: To Simplify by Jordan Miller on Oct. 6 at 1 p.m. Miller will speak to the exhibition at 2 p.m.
