Orchid, 2009 - Daniel Gordon
About the Work
This photograph draws on the still life tradition, creating an eerily realistic sculptural tableau from collaged elements. The Campbell's soup can is a winking nod to Andy Warhol, whose exploration of the ideas of artifice, reproduction, and simulacra are a precursor to Gordon's own.
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.
