Gray Jordan is a Norfolk based painter working with Gray-made pigments from foraged materials in the very landscapes she captures on paper and canvas.
Through her paintings Gray explores the wild reality (and serenities) of the landscapes – discovering the interwoven relationships of ‘place’ and all life in the environment.
“I find that themes of narrative, perception and identity are still central to my work, but I now explore how that identity functions within the concept of family, community and, particularly, place. I am drawn to explore how modern consumerist society substitutes narratives acquired through purchases for those derived from experience of place, relationships and connections with the natural world. I use foraged natural pigments and reclaimed surface as a way to further embed these questions within my painting and sculptural work.”
