SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Romer Young Gallery presents its first solo exhibition with Los Angeles painter Pamela Jorden. Jorden is part of a new generation of painters whose work is at the forefront of an ongoing and unfolding conversation around the possibilities and potential of ‘abstraction.’

“The structure of light is geometrical compared to the structure of matter which is ‘organic.’ (Organic = Free-form) Both matter and space have ‘density.’ Light opens peep-hole tracks in the ‘density’ of space, because of the structure of light and allows us to ‘see.’” (1)

Pamela Jorden’s exhibition Looking Through Trees presents a new series of paintings, each one an invitation for a phenomenological experience of a painterly space defined by color, mark, composition and light. Jorden emphasizes that the world we experience is not solely figurative and our senses that interpret our surroundings do not operate in a solely rational manner. This perspective informs her paintings and challenges the compartmentalizing of abstraction. Resisting depiction in favor of slow suggestions, the works quietly allude to such things as the natural effects of changing light, the densities and geometries of urban landscapes, the haze of atmospheres and environments. The works balance a play between foreground and background, void and form, light and dark, hard and loose. Gradually assembled, the paintings are composed of fragments with varying optical densities and accumulations of shape, line, texture and pattern - each mark an isolated experience adding to the synthesis of the whole. The end results existing as “experiments in which color has weight and energy with the power to harmonize or disrupt.”

Pamela Jorden received her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 1996. She will have her fourth solo exhibition at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery in New York City, NY in 2011. Recent projects include solo exhibitions at David Patton Gallery, Los Angeles; the Mason Gross Gallery, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. Group exhibitions include "The Working Title", Bronx River Art Center, Bronx NY, "One Year Anniversary Show," "Swap Thing" and "Sun Zoom Spark," WPA, Los Angeles CA, “Some Abstraction Occurs”, 65 Grand, Chicago, IL (2008), “Themes and Variations”, Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA (2007), “Reality is An Activity of the Most August Imagination”, Rental Gallery in Chinatown, Los Angeles (2006), and “(keep feeling) Fascination: Recent Abstract Painting in Los Angeles”, Luckman Gallery, Cal State LA (2006).
