From the artist’s studio
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 artwork is part of a new body of work created between 2015 and 2016.

Those paintings are divided in half vertically and use several different kinds of abstract techniques which are part of Gordon's inheritance as an artist.

Gordon found it interesting to have what could appear to be two paintings in a painting.

There is clearly a stronger use of gesture in those works that in those of the previous 10 years. For Gordon, gesture (and as drawing) carries all kinds of meaning and he wanted to use more of it in these new paintings.
