“Meticulous” and “delirious” are two seemingly contradictory yet completely apt words that have been used to describe the work of the Brooklyn-based artist Daniel Gordon. While photography is the foundation of his practice, his pieces are equal parts sculpture and collage, minutely realized. Gordon’s recent works incorporate sections from hundreds of images drawn from web printouts, magazines, and newspapers, which he arranges in three-dimensional compositions—generally portraits and still lifes—and then photographs and prints. The results of this painstaking process are vivid, ecstatic, and ultimately serene.
