The first UK solo exhibition of American photographer, Daniel Gordon opened at Huxley-Parlour in March 2021. The exhibition included four large-scale works, as well as fourteen intimate works that form Gordon’s latest body of work, exhibited for the first time.

Moving between two and three-dimensions, Gordon’s practice appropriates images of still-life subjects he finds on the Internet. Printing the images on paper before cutting them out, he then assembles a three-dimensional tableau in the studio which is subsequently photographed, linking handmade and digital-based processes and materials.

Gordon’s new photographic series, made during lockdown in New York in 2020, continues his rigorous and vibrant investigation of the still-life genre. The new works includes quotidian objects that reveal the routine of domestic life during quarantine, giving a wry nod to the banality and homogeneity of life lived in confinement. Tennis rackets and trainers hint at the routine of exercise, and are paired with other accoutrements of daily life including batteries and cutlery. The works utilise the artist’s signature use of colour and composition, revelling in pattern and palette.

Biography

Moving between two and three-dimensions, Daniel Gordon’s practice appropriates images of still-life subjects he finds on the Internet. Printing the images on paper before cutting them out, he then assembles a three-dimensional tableau in the studio which is subsequently photographed, linking handmade and digital-based processes and materials.

Gordon’s new photographic series, made during lockdown in New York in 2020, continues his rigorous and vibrant investigation of the still-life genre. The new works includes quotidian objects that reveal the routine of domestic life during quarantine, giving a wry nod to the banality and homogeneity of life lived in confinement. Tennis rackets and trainers hint at the routine of exercise, and are paired with other accoutrements of daily life including batteries and cutlery. Gordon transforms his downloaded imagery from immaterial data to material objects and back again. In doing so, his work points to the proliferation of imagery and photographic representation and suggests that these have become symbiotic with, rather than symbolic of, the physical world.

Daniel Gordon was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1980. He received a BA from Bard College, New York in 2003 before graduating with an MFA from Yale University in 2006. Gordon’s work has been published in numerous monographs and he has been exhibited internationally in major art institutions, such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, Pier 24, San Francisco and Foam Museum, Amsterdam among others.

Gordon lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
