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 earned her BFA from Dartmouth College studying Studio Art and Psychology. She has participated in numerous artist residency programmes and exhibitions nationally and internationally. Craig’s first residence was in 2018 at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 2019 she was the recipient of the notable Roswell Artist-in-Residence fellowship and more recently has participated in residencies including UCross Foundation in Clearmont, Wyoming (2020); Anderson Ranch t in Snowmass Village, Colorado (2022) and Acequia Madre House in Santa Fe, New Mexico (2023). As of 2022, Craig sits on the Hood Museum of Art Board of Advisors and is also newly appointed Commissioner of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Indian Arts and Crafts Board (IACB).
