Jordan CareyNovember 1 – November 21, 2019
Jordan Carey is a textile design and fashion artist. Born and raised in Bermuda until the age of fifteen, Jordan has taken much of his inspiration from Afro Caribbean aesthetic practices. These influences have culminated into his distinct sartorial style that displays Afrocentric inclinations immersed in eurocentrism. Unique and complex fabric printing, rhythmic composition, hand knitting, and adornment are all elements present in his body of work that he views as relics of a very near and mundane afrofuture. Jordan recently graduated from Maine College of Art with a Bachelor’s in Fashion and Textile and is currently working as an assistant designer for Jill McGowan, Inc., a women’s apparel design and manufacturer based in Portland Maine.
