    Daniel Gordon: Artichoke

Art: Bright, beautiful 3D collage from artist and photographer Daniel Gordon

Posted by James Cartwright,

What is Daniel Gordon? Photographer? Artist? A hybrid of the two? We’ll go for hybrid. See, Daniel’s practice is made up of both photographic and sculptural processes, using found photos, magazine cuttings and coloured paper to build three-dimensional collages that are then photographed as a final 2D piece. It’s a complex journey for individual images, but one that Daniel travels expertly. The results feel like props from a Peter Gabriel video or a Guy Bourdin photograph made from paper; all bold colours, pouting lips and sensuously placed fruits. That’s what you get when you undertake an MFA at Yale; compositional perfection!
