Caleb de Jong reviews the exhibition Pamela Jorden: Sun and Moon at Klaus Von Nichtssagend Gallery, New York, on view through December 4, 2011.

Although Jorden's paintings reference both her studio surroundings and early modernist work by artists such as Delaunay, "A light touch prevents her work from becoming overly cerebral or beholden to her sources... Jorden's paintings, modest, quiet and sincere, transfer each studio decisions into elusive political moments."
