Kay Gordon

I work in diverse media: lithography, etching, mixed media, drawing, installation, & objects/sculpture. Fundamental themes in my work are the balance of chaos and order, and the dependency of one object's juxtaposition to the next to reveal its form or even create its existence. Sculptures and installations include drawing—with wire, thread, shadow—on a variety of surfaces and in space. Formal composition creates a framework for revealing subconscious concerns, fears and dreams. Recent work responds to the violence, and ensuing tragedy, of current political, religious, and natural events/human-created events. I live and work in Brooklyn, with my studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and I teach at Kingsborough, City University of New York. Upcoming & recent exhibitions include "Human Rights" at the Plains Art Museum, Fargo, North Dakota; "Uprooted" at IA&A at Hillyer Gallery, Washington, DC; and "Art of Armistice" at Target Gallery: Torpedo Factory, Alexandria, VA.
