Photo Art: Getting Physical

daniel-gordon-gets-physicalThis short film is a fascinating look at the way Brooklyn-based photo artist Daniel Gordon creates the elaborate, colorful, three-dimensional tableaux he constructs with images collected from the Internet. The video focuses on still lifes, created with analog techniques then finished digitally.  A joy to watch, especially if you’re interested in process.

daniel-gordon-gets-physical-artThe video was recently screened as part of a Hort, New York, event (see details on this page, which also has background information on Daniel Gordon). It was produced by Art21 as part of a New York Close Up devoted to artists in the first decade of their professional career, living and working in New York City.

  1. I LOVE this… I’m so inspired not to clean my studio!! 🙂 Seriously, though, it is amazing work, and though he tears it all down, the prints completely suggest the hours of work that went into them. I think he must be operating on a subconcious level much of the time, just letting instinct flow… beautiful. Leave that floor alone!


  2. Wow, that was pretty inspiring to me. Now I know what to do with my paintings… well, not exactly, but I know which way to go now… Thanks a lot for showing the Daniel Gordon video!!! 😉
