EDWARD GORDON — Edward Gordon achieves complete and painstaking precision in his rendering of textures, colors and forms. Like photography he deliberately softens the strong contrasts of the picture without blurring the forms. He mellows the outline drawing with such perfection that it becomes impossible to detect his under drawings.
Edward Gordon creates a quiet beauty of a simple scene with fresh eyes giving the viewer an idea of what he felt as he watched the light flooding through the windows and the shadows and colors cast by objects in the interiors.
Because of the precision and incredible detail contained in each of Edward Gordon's paintings, he is able to produce only 4 to 6 images per year. He is a consummate draftsman with a keen eye depicting his subject matters.
Gordon's solitude evokes all of one's senses: the smell and sounds of the ocean, the touch of objects, with doors and windows opening to never-ending opportunities.
