Paul Behnke visits the studio of painter Jordan Broadworth.

Behnke writes: "Broadworth's layred, evocative pieces present multiple takes on the figure / ground relationship as isolated segments blur or refine depths of field. The focus is constantly shifted. between planes and layers, the hard edge and the liltingly biomorphic. The employed grid combines with a metaphysical openness to lull viewers into a techno trance and jolt them back out again. The resulting paintings are grand, superb hybrids of our increasingly digital environment and a more expansive, human reservoir that we seek even as we leave it behind."

Jordan Broadworth: Paintings will be on view at Galerie BAC, Montréal from September 18 - October 12, 2013.
