Douglas Udell Gallery presents "Havens", the first solo Vancouver exhibition of Halifax-based artist Jessica Korderas. Korderas' acrylic resin-based, three-dimensional works often take inspiration from cinema, symbolic and illustrative figurative painting. In "Havens", Korderas explores the cathartic effects of solitude; intricately painted illusory scenes are embedded between layers of resin, trapping light and giving the effect of movement when viewed from varied angles.

Jessica Korderas received her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a minor in English from Mount Allison University in 2007. An emerging artist, Korderas is well on her way to establishing herself as a unique talent, captivating the public with her sophisticated use of acrylic resin.

She has been included in a public group exhibition titled, "inbetween", curated by Mireille Eagan, which exhibited at The Confederation Centre for the Arts, Charlottetown, PEI in 2009, and at The Doris McCarthy galley in Toronto, ON, in 2011. She is slated to exhibit in 2013 at Galerie de l'UQAM in Montreal, QC, as part of 'Le Project Peinture/The Painting Project' curated by Marie-Eve Beaupré and Julie Bélisle.
