Available For Sale
James Panero, executive editor of the New Criterion, has been reviewing Gordon’s exhibitions for years and says about his work: “Dana Gordon has been working through a particular abstract construction that positions a color form within a grid. While many artists paint widely, Gordon paints deeply. He has been singularly dedicated to understanding the possibilities of this particular idiom.The gradual evolution of his work has become an art project in itself. I can think of few artists who are as thoughtful in examining the building blocks of oil on canvas (…) Rather than exhaust a simple language; Gordon has demonstrated how a few basic elements can captivate us with a kaleidoscope of visual interest”

Dana Gordon’s kaleidoscopic compositions are contemplative and evoke somewhat Orphic Cubism. His paintings have an overwhelming presence with their colour and structure, where gestural curves, unconstrained small pattern and form play together. Gordon is interested in the visual conversation between colours, shapes and lines, looking for the tension between the shape and the grid. He thinks of the shapes, adjoining shapes, and clusters of shapes as little paintings in themselves, within the larger whole painting.
