Jordan Holms is a visual artist, writer and curator from Vancouver, Canada. She is currently an MFA/MA candidate at the San Francisco Art Institute and recently received her BFA in Critical and Cultural Practices from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2015. Her painting practice employs abstraction as a methodology by which to conflate economies of space and transgress the confines of public and private arenas. Through a conceptual framework that is interested in translation, ritual, craft, and labor, she smuggles patterns, textures, colors, and shapes across the boundaries of the inside and the outside world and locates them in an in-between space – a threshold – that isn’t entirely designated as one place or the other. Holms has exhibited internationally and her work is held in several private collections. She is also a Teaching Assistant at the San Francisco Art Institute and Co-Director of SFAI’s Swell Gallery.
