For over a decade, Los Angeles-based artist Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon has been exploring sound in relationship to the body through installation, sculpture and performance. Gordon work stems from an acute awareness of human experience in relationship to architecture and constructed environments, as informed by systems theory, acoustic engineering, industrial design, mid-century modernism and post-punk noise-based performance. For her solo show at CULT, and concurrent with her first solo museum show at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Gordon has created a series of abstract drawings that reference how sound as information is felt in the body. The extruding lines and carefully rendered colored orbs suggest both ethereality and embodiment. Flesh-colored and curvilinear, resonant spaces float on ordered grids—reminiscent of cavernous environments, anatomy and the outdated 2-dimensional worlds of laboratory notebooks. Illuminating context, Gordon states “I’m alluding to how audio filters shape sound in the digital domain and architecture resonates sound in the physical realm.”

Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon received her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2004 and an MFA from Stanford University in 2011, where her research focused on the history of communications technology and the physiological and psychophysical effects of music and sound on the body. Gordon has had solo shows at Pro Arts Gallery in Oakland, Eli Ridgway Gallery, Queens Nails (both formerly in San Francisco) and the San Francisco Arts Commission. She has also exhibited at Institute of Contemporary Art in London, di Rosa Foundation in Napa, SOMArts in San Francisco, Cue Arts Foundation in New York City, and Machine Project in Los Angeles. Gordon has received numerous awards including the 2011 Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Award, a Center for Cultural Innovation Grant and a Phelan, Murphy, and Cadogan Fellowship. She has participated in artist residencies at Skowhegan School of Drawing and Painting, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art and Djerassi Resident Artists Program. A solo show of her work is currently on exhibit at the Yerba Buena Center for Art in San Francisco through June 2014.
