JORDAN ANN CRAIG
Jordan Ann Craig, an artist from the Northern Cheyenne, creates paintings, prints and textile works, which are an exploration of existence, time and space, woven from cultural memory and epiphany.
The process is meticulous and meditative, often obsessive in mark and repetition. She draws inspiration from Indigenous textiles, beadwork, pottery and landscapes. Her work shares personal stories through abstraction, colour and rhythm. She engages past, present and future to depict Indigenous design through a contemporary lens. Craig creates new narratives within her work while celebrating her ancestors and Indigenous land. Her abstract paintings and prints expands the definition of Native American art, and how culture is transmitted.
Craig has participated in numerous artist residency programmes and exhibitions nationally and internationally. She earned her BFA from Dartmouth College studying Studio Art and Psychology. Craig’s first residence was in 2018 at the School for Advanced Research, Santa Fe. She is most recently the recipient of the Roswell Artist-in-Residence fellowship, and currently lives and paints in Roswell, New Mexico.
