This elegant volume explores the artist Janet Jordan’s rich biography alongside insights into forty-two of her paintings that depict three themes present throughout her artistic career—Nature, Spirituality, and The Dream Song of Olaf Åsteson. At the core of her work is the desire to use color to transcend her ego and create a universal, soul experience for both herself and the beholder.
Janet Jordan’s impressive biography encapsulates a commitment to teaching and contentment in family life, culminating in a dedication to an artistic career during her retirement. The Life and Work of Janet Faith Jordan also delves into the inspiration and painting technique underpinning her creations, such as Goethe’s theory of color and her work with Beppe Assenza. Another influence in Jordan’s pieces is the veil painting technique of Liane Collot d’Herbois, used to delicately portray the dynamic interplay of light and dark.Jordan’s exquisite imagination is brought to life in every page of this finely crafted, hardback publication, showcasing the perfect amalgamation of an artistic and personal life worth celebrating. The reader is encouraged to view Jordan’s art with an understanding of the connection between the art and spiritual world, while also envisioning one’s own perceptions through visual enjoyment of the images.
