Pamela Jorden is the first comprehensive look at the work of the American abstractionist who has sought to pursue and expand upon the language of abstraction through investigations of painting as a medium throughout her 20-year career.

Jorden is one of an increasing number of young painters taking an interest in a gestural approach to abstraction that seemed all but forsaken not long ago. 

Looking back at early abstractionists such as Sonia Delaunay, it is possible to see their influence on Jorden’s work, through her circle motifs and idiosyncratic use of color, although it is clear that other later abstract artists were also influential to Jorden’s work, such as 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 color. With her stark backgrounds and unusual relations of shapes and patterns, Jorden’s work is introspective and self-conscious.
