About Gordon

Apik Art Gallery

Exploration of the human condition through artistic creation is what it’s about for me. Along with playwriting and flyfishing my most enduring passion in life is sculpting. I have worked with wood, soapstone, plastic and most recently clay. Rodin observed that the interplay between subject and material in sculpture necessarily invokes sensuality. As I work with clay the veracity of that remark has never been so personal or intense. My sculptures have been selected for several juried exhibitions since 2013, including: Beacon Original Art, Calyx Distinctive Art, Artistic Entities and State of Art Society. They have been chosen for group shows with the Leighton Arts Centre, Roberto Ostberg Gallery and Midtowne Gallery. Recent and current exhibitions include Gust Gallery, Waterton, Evanescence Gallery, High River, Lineham House Gallery Okotoks, Crowsnest Gallery, Latitude Gallery, Calgary, Framed On 5th Gallery, Calgary, Calgary Stampede Western Art Gallery, Calgary Public Library Gallery, Gallery YEG, Edmonton, and Odette Laroche Gallery in Sidney, BC.. Through sculpting I challenge myself to create beauty from the deepest part of me, where the lovely language of form and space resides.
