Paul Brach Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Jordie Oetken
Jordie Oetken is a multidisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. Her photographs use scale, lighting, and strategies of containment to maintain a continuous tension, asking the viewer to oscillate between their desire for calcification and the ambiguous narrative power of the image. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Oetken earned her MFA from UCLA, and has held residencies at MacDowell, Lighthouse Works, and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Recent exhibitions include Storm Before the Calm at Praz-Delavallade, Hippocrene, a solo exhibition at No Moon LA, as well as In Tandem, a two-person exhibition at TSA LA with New York based artist, Zachary Fabri.
