Painter and moving-image artist Shelley Jordon will discuss her artwork in the exhibition Ordinary Matters.

Using traditional forms of drawing and painting as well as hand-drawn animation, Jordon focuses on everyday objects and brings out their emotional and psychological resonance. She will also discuss how recent collaborations with composers and roboticists have influenced her studio practice.
