Vernissage et lancement du catalogue d’exposition, jeudi 19 septembre – 17h а 20h

Montrйal, 5 septembre 2013– Galerie BAC est heureuse de vous prйsenter la toute premiиre exposition solo montrйalaise du peintre Jordan Broadworth. Cette exposition intitulйe Jordan Broadworth – Peintures sera prйsentйe du 18 septembre au 12 octobre2013. Le vernissage et le lancement du catalogue d’exposition auront lieu le jeudi 19 septembreentre17h et 20hen prйsence de l’artiste.

Les њuvres prйsentйes dans cette exposition confirment le questionnement continu de l’artiste sur le rфle de la peinture dans un monde toujours plus numйrisй. Ses peintures regroupent l’immйdiat et la mйdiation. Elles йvoluent dans un espace incertain situй а la frontiиre entre l’expйrience de l’observateur qui regarde une toile en personne et celle de celui qui la regarde sur un йcran, en ligne. Son utilisation de la lumiиre йvoque le cathodique et les peintures semblent rйtroйclairйes. La profondeur et la physicalitй des њuvres contribuent au synchronisme entre rйalitй et fiction qu’il rйussit а communiquer. Dans ces tableaux, la relation entre la surface et le contenu pictural se dйsagrиge. Il ne s’agit pas ici d’une simple inversion. La surface et le contenu se superposent et s’entrelacent admirablement.

Jordan Broadworth est nй en 1968 а Esquesing en Ontario. А la fois peintre, commissaire d’exposition et йcrivain, il a йtudiй а l’йcole du musйe des beaux-arts de Boston et au Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (B.B.A., 1992) avant d’obtenir une maоtrise en beaux-arts de l’universitй de Guelph en 1997. Finaliste au concours de peintures canadienne RBC en 2003, Broadworth est rйcipiendaire de nombreuses bourses du conseil des arts de l’Ontario et du conseil des arts du Canada. Durant les vingt derniиres annйes, Broadworth a exposй abondamment dans des galeries publiques et privйes. Son oeuvre fait partie de plusieurs collections publiques au Canada ainsi que de collections privйes а l’international. Broadworth vit et travail а Brooklyn, New York.

Jordan BroadworthPaintings
September 18th to October 12th 2013

Opening reception and catalogue launch, Thursday September 19th – 5pm to 8pm

Montreal, September 5th 2013 – Galerie BAC is proud to present the first Montreal solo exhibition by painter Jordan Broadworth. This exhibition entitled Jordan Broadworth – Paintings will be on from September 18th to October 12th 2013. The opening reception and catalogue launch will be held Thursday September 19th from 5pm to 8pm with the artist in attendance.

In this recent body of work Broadworth continues to question painting’s role in an increasing digital world. His paintings are a synthesis of the immediate and the mediated. They function in liminal space between the experience of seeing work in the flesh and viewing paintings on-line. His use of light is screen-like; the paintings appear backlit. The depth and physicality in the work is a seamless blend of fact and fiction. Additionally, the relationship between figure and ground break down in these paintings. Not simply a reversal, figure and ground trade back and forth and folds in and out.

Jordan Broadworth was born in Esquesing, Ontario, Canada in 1968. He studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (BFA 1992) prior to graduating from the University of Guelph’s Master of Fine Art program in 1997. Finalist at the 2003 RBC Painting Competition, Broadworth has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council. He has exhibited widely in public and private galleries over the past twenty years. His work is represented in public collections across Canada and internationally in private collections. In addition to painting Broadworth is an occasional curator and writer. He lives and works in New York City.
