Working with Mossenson Galleries Subiaco, BRAG presents for the first time The Greek Paintings by Col Jordan.
In 2018 Jordan tested new techniques on paper and explored the possibilities that this medium could bring to his practice.
His work has always overlayed one reality on another conflicting reality seeking to produce a new unity out of this conflict. This plus the artist’s early fascination with mythology of Daedalus and the Maze eventually led him to the idea of a series of twenty-four paintings, each work taking the anglicised name of a letter from the ancient Greek alphabet and from these letter shapes producing an abstract composition. Jordan decided that the series should explore and revisit every technique and colour variation used in his work since his first exhibition at Sydney’s Watters Gallery in 1966.
The result is the called The Greek Paintings.
