About Andrew Gordon
Andrew Gordon is a painter who lives and works on the southern coast of Victoria. He has held 5 solo exhibitions both in Victoria and Queensland. His subject matter generally explores the male figure combining both the playful and the dim elements of life. He is a natural colourist and handles the paint medium with a light touch not dissimilar to a watercolourist. In his recent works Gordon combines his trademark translucency of running colours with a bold and sometimes solid application of paint. Gordon has participated in numerous group exhibitions primarily within artist run spaces throughout Brisbane and Melbourne. His most recent exhibition (February 2011) entitled 'White Line Fever' featured a collection of paintings that highlight the turbulent lives of well known Australian sportsmen.
