DANIEL GORDON IS A CONCEPTUAL PHOTOGRAPHER WHO LIVES AND WORKS IN BROOKLYN. HIS ARTWORKS CONSIST OF IMAGES THAT PLAY BETWEEN THE CONCEPTS OF ARTIFICE AND REALITY, BETWEEN SCULPTURAL AND NON-SCULPTURAL ELABORATIONS.
His creative process consists in searching the web for images, printing and cutting them to build large, three-dimensional collages. The key to his creations is the improvisation, fundamental to his work. The taboos of deliberately rough paper, appear between reality and fiction in what he calls the “physical manifestation of the web”. Fruit silhouettes, disjoint cardboard flowers, and deliberately decomposed bodies create new forms of disharmony to reflect on the true meaning of what is being observed. The artist uses enlarged details of small images, such as shelled textures used for backdrops, or real photographs of objects, cut and applied on a physical reconstruction of the same. Surreal, frosty, abstract, imperfect and deformed scenes.
