About the Work
About Flowers and Shadows
This photographic portfolio typifies Gordon's sly take on the still life tradition. The flowers and silhouetted individuals depicted in this body of work are all painstakingly collaged out of printed paper, challenging the assumption that photography should capture the natural world.
About the Artist
About Daniel Gordon
More recently, Gordon's practice has moved into the studio: instead of using himself as a model, the artist composes three-dimensional collages—mostly lurid still lives and grotesque portraits—from old magazines and Internet printouts, which he then photographs. Unlike the seamless perfection of images manipulated with Adobe Photoshop, these paper tableaux are deliberately crude and unpolished. "I'm interested in showing my hand and letting people see the imperfection," Gordon says.
Gordon has had solo shows at several international galleries and has been included in notable group exhibitions including Out of Focus at the Saatchi Gallery, Greater New York at MoMA PS1 (2010), and New Photography 2009 at the Museum of Modern Art.
