Brooklyn-based creative experimentalist, Daniel Gordon, has staged and photographed a series of still lifes, using collage. Gordon’s The Green Line collection is a work still in progress, which aims to corrode your perception between what is real and what has been fabricated.
A garish display of traditional still life elements (water jugs, fruit, vegetables and textiles) have been clunkily wrapped or covered by printed images of themselves.
“I like photographs that aren’t just one thing,” says Gordon, “but are complicated, with blurred lines between themes such as the grotesque and the beautiful, humour and terror, wholeness and fragmentation, or innocence and corruption.”
Gordon graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Bard College in 2004 and a Master of Fine Arts from the Yale School of Art in 2006. His notable group exhibitions include New Photography 2009 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
