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”
This work is part of an early series made in 1978 where Gordon explored how marks develop into lines, then into shapes, and then into pictures. Sometimes the marks and lines played on the cusp between marks/lines and letters/words.
