Drawing: Liverpool, 2014
New Babylon 2013
Nancy Victor is pleased to announce New Babylon, a solo show by Jordan Rodgers. The exhibition presents a technological dawn of drawing the city of the future in a new age. Where the process of creation is kinetic and mobile; the ability to draw on a hand held tablet in any location allows one to document in new ways. Addressing both what meets the eye and what the eye constructs, as a window to real and imaginary places where the extended lines of the buildings appear to have angles, which have more potential than the visible; the invisible of the building. Embarking on the current series of work presents cross-disciplinary drawing involving architectural visualisation as part of research, images and thoughts in re-shaping the sense of a designed city. Rodgers explores themes between art and technology as a means to record and document everyday journeys, drawn in the evolution of a Modern Metropolis. These include personal narratives and environmental awareness of Psychogeography specific to the location. Comparing historical, architectural and cultural influences raises questions about how far one can observe at any given moment.
