About The Artwork
In this edition Gordon explores the legacy of twentieth-century abstraction. Gordon melds mediums, resulting in works that incorporate elements of, and blur the boundaries between, painting, sculpture, and installation. Using bright colours and block-like geometric forms, Gordon masses and layers the simple elements she employs, highlighting the way that presence can convey absence. Gordon is particularly interested in finding weakness within the works of notable male artists: she will often mine the works by the likes of Mondrian and Pollock, ferreting out what she deems failed or unsuccessful elements, and then enlarging those details in her own work.
