Artist Statement

Jordan Acker Anderson is interested in our interconnectedness. She believes that through the development of inner, personal peace, the reality of collective peace can be advanced. Her practice allows personal transformation to occur while responding to tangible media. Current global affairs become considered content.

She embeds her response to social injustices through symbolic forms and habitual gestures. Her work is a visual record of her contemplation. Her compositions are a call and response between states of disruption and integration. She purposefully practices detachment from previous layers of work to be in relationship with our impermanence. She offers her work as an invitation for greater personal reflection and collective contemplation of peace.
