Jordan Baraniecki

Artist member since 2019
Vancouver, British Columbia

Jordan Baraniecki is a Vancouver-based artist that specializes in drawing. His work explores the relationship between positive and negative space from a metaphysical point of view. This branch of philosophy deals with the first principles of things, as well as abstract concepts about time, space and knowing.

His work has been shown in Toronto at the Propeller Gallery and Gallery 1313. In the United States, he has shown at the Shot Tower Gallery in Columbus, OH, and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO. Jordan was invited to an artist residency in Lodz, Poland in 2018 where he embarked on a 45-day residency to find out if his Polish heritage was apparent in his life as a Canadian Citizen. He is a member of the Invisible Artist Collective International. Jordan has also been awarded artist grants for two consecutive years by SaskArts Saskatchewan.
