Oranges and Artichokes
25.01 – 02.03.2024
Huxley-Parlour gallery are pleased to announce a two-person exhibition of Brooklyn-based artists Graham Anderson and Daniel Gordon. The exhibition is the first to bring together these two artists for whom the still-life genre forms the central axis of their practice. The exhibition presents new oil paintings and works on paper in gouache by Anderson and a suite of six new large-scale photographs by Gordon.
Includes: Graham Anderson, Daniel Gordon
Both Anderson and Gordon create highly layered work that offers a unique re-evaluation of the tableau tradition. Using repeated iconography – an orange for Anderson, an artichoke for Gordon – each artist seeks to question the nature of the image-object relationship. Both artists use multiple layers of optical fields – with imagery oscillating between flatness and depth.
Anderson utilises flat plains of colour, pointillist brushstrokes and trompe l’oeil techniques to distort illusionistic space. Gordon’s artistic practice is situated at the intersection of mediums, moving freely between the two dimensional and the three dimensional. Gordon appropriates found images of still-life subjects that he prints out 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.
