Swansea based Ann Jordan is a Fine Artist who creates sculptures, mainly in textiles that currently relate to the topology of costal and rural landscapes.

About

These pieces are made from Welsh sheep fleeces which in themselves evoke a sense of local identity and place. Age old techniques and processes are integral to the physical body of the work that addresses issues within a contemporary context.

Bed Rock, 2017 emulates the geological strata of an eroding cliff-face caused by the forces of nature and the rise in sea levels due to global warming, exacerbated  by human activities. Here the softness of the wool, woven and felted, alludes to the fragile nature of our planet. This work has been especially made to relate to and be shown during the Ephemeral Coast exhibition.

Ann has exhibited throughout Wales and beyond, including Venice, France and Colorado. She is a Founder Director of Elysium Gallery in Swansea. Ann has been awarded grants from the ACW, Swansea Dylan Thomas Centenary Fund and the Brecon Beacon National Park Authority Regeneration Fund for her seminal work cwtch located on the Black Mountain.
