Jardel is known for her compositional rhythms that explore the space of representation and abstraction. The series of drawings is an ambivalence of forms and space and an engagement with the ambiguous and the unknown. Jardel created the moody and atmospheric quality with layers of graphite, charcoal, oil pastel, crayon, and pigment stick until the image is obscured and gestures of abstraction takes over without a fixed identity. Her work suggests images of landscapes and seascapes and the ephemeral departure from certainty. “My intent is to visually communicate a play of contradictory forces, disruptions, and shifts wherein no message is delivered, no names named and no places known. I like to see my work as spaces of ambiguity inviting the viewer to a patient contemplation. Drawing is a transient moment in time and space where lines, shapes, and colors are vestiges in state of metamorphosis.”
Parisian born Jardel received her MFA from the San Francisco State University (1998) and BFA San Francisco Art Institute (1994).
