David K Gordon reveals his keenly observed view of day-to-day life in New York City where he has spent his entire life. The media is oil, pastel and prints. Using his skill as a draughtsman, enhanced through photography, he has produced a personal and highly innovative exploration of his art.
He had his first pastel exhibition in 2001 at the Tatitscheff Gallery in New York, followed by shows there in 2003 and 2004. Consequently, he was featured in a major article in Pastel Journal. He is now a member of the Prince Street Gallery where he exhibited work in oil, pastel and print in 2009, an all print show in September, 2013 and 2015. Other exhibitions include those at the Spencertown Academy of Art in 2008 and the Quick Center for the Arts 2009. He is a member of SAGA, Society of American Graphic Artists.
The New York Times, in a review of his show, stated:
“Mr. Gordon…gives things like paper bags, bisected muffins, rumpled dishtowels and culinary hardware — scattered or in altar-like formation — a shimmering animation.“ — Ken Johnson
