Dana Gordon, ‘Counterpoise’, 2013, IdeelArt

Dana Gordon’s kaleidoscopic compositions are contemplative and evoke somewhat Orphic Cubism.

His paintings have an overwhelming presence with their colour and structure, where gestural curves, unconstrained small pattern and form play together.

Gordon is interested in the visual conversation between colours, shapes and lines, looking for the tension between the shape and the grid.

He thinks of the shapes, adjoining shapes, and clusters of shapes as little paintings in themselves, within the larger whole painting.
