Meet Jordan Wolfson MFA ’91, “Song Cycle with Blue Cloth” at 808 Projects
21 February 2019 | 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Internationally-exhibited artist Jordan Wolfson MFA ’91 (seen above in his studio) has his first solo show in Colorado since 2009, which has been deemed by Westword critic Michael Paglia as “must see.” An abridged version of Song Cycle with Blue Cloth will open at 808 Projects, 808 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, on Thursday, January 31st. There will be a special event for Yale alumni and their guests Thursday, February 21st, starting at 6:00 pm. The show includes 27 paintings an 11 drawings that develop from a single still life, which Jordan refers to as “an extended polyptych.”
Working on the series for over three years, the installation presents a single motif moving through multiple iterations, as Wolfson explores, on the surface, attitudes of inquiry from the visual and tonal to the tactile and felt. This exploration of ways of working, “painterly play”, moves into an investigation of the relationship between form and awareness.
CYA art events will be co-listed with the Yale Alumni Art League, which is a national alumni special-interest group (SIG). The logo seen here was designed by past CYA President John Boak ’70, who has started a local group with a Facebook page.
