Melissa Gordon ‘Modern Surfaces’
20 February 2014
Melissa Gordon’s new solo show ‘Modern Surfaces’ at the Deweer Gallery, Otegem February 5- March 16 2014
Gordon’s work as a painter and printmaker follows the relationship between representation and abstraction, seeing and reading. The artist often enlarges details to reveal hidden structures, zooming in until textual or pictorial information is reduced to dots and lines. She draws on source material that might be considered by-products of history, of medium and of making: the grid structure of Modernist painting, the dot matrix of the silk screen and details from her own painting studio.
