Jen Pack’s UnQuiet Chromo at Taylor De Cordoba

Jen Pack’s (NAP #73) UnQuiet Chromo at Taylor De Cordoba is something of an artistic oxymoron—in the best way possible.  Her works are both loud and quiet.  Soft and hard.  Strong and delicate. Opaque and solid.  Something about her stretched chiffon patchwork defies many of the qualities that the pieces also envelop and embody.

Crafting & Curating: “Recrafting History” at Taylor De Cordoba

I was recently asked to curate a show for Taylor De Cordoba, a gallery in LA's Culver City art district. "Recrafting History: History, Nostalgia, and Craft in the American Memory" opened on October 29th and since then, I have had a lot of people ask me what exactly curating entails. - Read more of Ellen Caldwell's curating experience after the jump!

Fabrications with Jen Pack (NAP #73)

Jen Pack (NAP #73) deconstructs, reconstructs, sews, and stretches fabric onto frames and into large masses in a way that creates something at once familiar and yet also new.  Her works resonate with viewers and remind them of a variety of other arts and images, creating a kind of cyclical “trialogue” – a dialogue between artist, art, viewer, and back.

From her nuanced and detailed stretched chiffon pieces to her large installation work with kite-like nylon, Pack’s work is both moving and provoking, aesthetically and mentally. – Ellen Caldwell, LA Contributor
