General Hardware Contemporary is pleased to present Field & Stream, Canadian artist Jordan Broadworth’s first solo exhibition at GHC. Broadworth lives and works in New York City and will be in attendance at the opening reception.
The spectral bandwidth and high formal resolution of Jordan Broadworth’s energized abstractions lend them a restless and fluid mien. Like a game of Snakes and Ladders, where the snakes are gestures and the ladders are synaptic trellises, these works are plugged into the most advanced of today’s digital realities and tomorrow’s wired promise while channelling currents unknown to us. That Broadworth has been painting for almost two decades emphasizes his clear-sighted, even prophetic approach to abstraction. His brushwork and gesture enable agile grid-work that outpaces and displaces a tradition while still figuring within it. - excerpts from essay by James D. Campbell
Jordan Broadworth studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design prior to graduating from the University of Guelph’s Master of Fine Art program in 1997. He has exhibited in private and public galleries since 1994. In addition to painting Broadworth is also a curator and writer. His paintings are included in collections in North America, Europe and the UK. Broadworth has received recognition for his work in publications such as: Canadian Art Magazine, Abstract Painting in Canada and The Globe and Mail.
