Pamela Jorden is the first comprehensive look at the work of the American abstractionist. Looking at Jorden's circle motifs and idiosyncratic use of colour, it is possible to see the influence of both early abstractionists such as Sonia Delaunay, and later abstract artists including Helen Frankenthaler, Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns. Jorden approaches her paintings as a series of improvisations, building on initial compositional sketches and brushstrokes with areas of layered texture and colour. Jorden's style as an abstract painter is unique, and although it sometimes harbours the more untamed qualities of the 'provisional painting', it does not feature the lack of finish that those paintings tend to incorporate. With her stark backgrounds and unusual relationships between shapes and patterns, Jorden's work is introspective and self-conscious. Pamela Jorden is published to coincide with the tenth anniversary of Jorden's exhibiting on the East Coast with Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery, and covers works which span the past decade. In partnership with Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery.
