"My goal is to make paintings so realistic, that viewers are drawn into the imaginary space and share in the peaceful feeling that I try and incorporate into each work.
I relish the subtleties of light reflection combined with architectural details that falls somewhere between realism and surrealism.
There is something mystical yet serene in the quiet light found in interior spaces presented in harmony with the luminescent effect in the sky.”
Edward Gordon was born in Ocean City, New Jersey in 1940. He is a consummate draftsman with a keen eye, achieving complete and painstaking precision in his rendering of textures, colors and forms.
Edward takes the quiet beauty of a simple scene and provides the viewer an idea of what he felt as he watched the light flooding through windows, creating shadows and colors cast by objects in the interior and entices the viewer to enter, evoking all of one's senses: the smell and sounds of the ocean, the touch of objects, with doors and windows opening to never-ending opportunities.
Because of the precision and incredible detail contained in each of Edward's paintings, he is able to produce only 4 to 6 images per year.
At present, over 60 of Edwards paintings have been reproduced as giclees, 21 of which are sold out.
