Adam Gordon

UNTITLED (DALLAS ZOO)

2022
oil and dust on canvas
24 x 30 inches

Throughout his multimedia practice, Adam Gordon poses questions about the nature of human experiences and how framing and perspective shape them. Many of his images – both in paintings and photography – draw on the ambiguous moments of everyday life. Untitled (Dallas Zoo) draws on the perspective of a camera observing an outstretched hand trying to connect with a cheetah at a zoo. Three subjectivities are present in the painting – the cheetah, the person off camera only present as a hand, and the cameraman – and, strangely, all seem to be longing for something that will never happen. Gordon had a solo exhibition at The Power Station, Dallas, in 2018 and has been included in group exhibitions in the US and abroad.
