Words & Pictures Lecture Series: Daniel Gordon
In concert with, Hue and Saturate, Houston Center for Photography is excited to welcome exhibiting artist, Daniel Gordon, for an evening lecture as part of the Words & Pictures Lecture Series. In this lecture, the Brooklyn-based artist will discuss the process behind making his painterly photographs, taken with a large-format camera and often digitally manipulated in post-production.
Embracing both the analog and the digital, Gordon captures complex table scenes created from collaged paper sculptures, which are sourced from internet-based found imagery. these works orient the viewer to a very contemporary perspective on the world that is distinctly interdisciplinary, straddling the virtual world and the physical world we live in through the ultimate machine of verisimilitude – the camera. This exhibition is the artist’s first in Houston, having previously exhibited in institutions such as MOMA P.S. 1 (Queens, NY), J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles, CA), and James Fuentes Gallery (NY, NY).
