Jordann Wine

Inspired by sacred geometry, Jordann Wine draws on classical forms and patterns in her work to reference mathematical concepts that reflect the wonders of the universe. Working with the golden ratio, fractals, and gradients these geometric abstract paintings, drawings and murals connect to notions of deep space in time, as well as deep space found in meditation. Floating, falling, fading and unfolding patterns of triangles and circles mesmerize the viewer, evoking contemplation of the infinite. Seeking order out of chaos, and interrupting rigidity of order with slight imperfections in the repetition is central to the meditative nature of her practice and to the solace it intends to bring out in the hand-drawn imagery.

Inspired by sacred geometry, Jordann Wine draws on classical forms and patterns in her work to reference mathematical concepts that reflect the wonders of the universe. Working with the golden ratio, fractals, and gradients these geometric abstract paintings, drawings and murals connect to notions of deep space in time, as well as deep space found in meditation. Floating, falling, fading and unfolding patterns of triangles and circles mesmerize the viewer, evoking contemplation of the infinite. Seeking order out of chaos, and interrupting rigidity of order with slight imperfections in the repetition is central to the meditative nature of her practice and to the solace it intends to bring out in the hand-drawn imagery.
 
Along with her work in drawings, paintings and murals, Jordann has evolved her practice by introducing glitter. Glitter, commonly dismissed as an ordinary craft material, is elevated to a painterly standard as she foregrounds the material’s inherent qualities of holding and releasing light. Making use of the medium’s full range of iridescent, opaque, and translucent color qualities, she transforms the childish or garish reputation of glitter into a reflective cosmic field. Reflective surfaces instinctually remind people of water, the element most critical to survival. Glitter’s shimmering surfaces, reminiscent of light hitting water, attracts the viewer into the work, evoking the appeal of both the movement of water as flow and the introspective quality of water as stillness.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts from New York University; where she studied Sustainable Entrepreneurship in the Gallatin School of Individualized Study and minored in Studio Art. She continued her education at the Aegean Center for Fine Arts in Paros, Greece. Currently, based in Washington, DC, she has had solo exhibitions at Honfleur Gallery, George Mason University, and Strathmore Arts Center, as well as many national and international group exhibitions. She has murals throughout DC, Maryland, New York and Jamaica, working with among others: Facebook, the DC Commission of Arts and Humanities, POW! WOW! DC, Conrad Hotel, lululemon, and JBG. Her work has been purchased for private collections, including recent acquisitions for the permanent collections of the Kennedy Center, Capital One Café, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Art Bank, Lockheed Martin, Fairmont Hotel, Montefiore Hospital, and Booz Allen Hamilton.  She was a 2021, 2020 and 2019 recipient of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Artist Fellowship grant.
