JORDIE OETKEN @ Kopeikin Gallery


JORDIE OETKEN: CRUX
July 14th – August 25th, 2018

Reception for the Artist Saturday, August 25 from 6 – 8pm

“The artist’s background in painting and sculpture is evident as she layers limbs and forms creating compositions that are reminiscent of Baroque paintings or Hellenistic Greek sculptures. Oetken’s scale, lighting and compositional containment maintains a continuous tension. “The photographic frame plays an essential role in this body of work, intentionally using its containment to heighten each happening,” the photographer explains. “Female limbs cross in and out of the image; hands graze the edge, though each figure’s face always remains just out of view— affording closeness while maintaining distance.””
