To Be in Jordan Kasey’s “Orbit”

Nicelle Beauchene Gallery is pleased to present Orbit, Jordan Kasey’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. Orbit comprises eight large-scale oil on canvas paintings in which the artist explores quiet moments that pulsate with a broad spectrum of feeling. Featuring Kasey’s characteristically stone-like, colossal figures, the new work marks a shift in focus towards depicting the relationship between a mother and a child. Whereas the subjects of the artist’s paintings have long been solitary and seemingly anonymous, here we witness the full intensity of parenthood, from the magnetic tug of attachment, coexistence, and care to more complex associations of compromise, fatigue, and isolation.
