Flowers & Shadows the title for his Camera Artists collection has a distinct Warholian ring. Andy (I Want to Be Matisse) Warhol’s briskly composed still-lifes were central to his immense graphic oeuvre- but Gordon’s studio is no ‘factory’. Knee-deep in recyclable debris it’s a space for rejuvenation and to paraphrase John Baldesarri, the artist’s ‘place of power’. Daniel Gordon’s refreshing methodology and the 2-dimensional products of his energies situate him historically with sly Dadaists, dedicated revolutionaries, and heroic Cubists who first welcomed the camera into the modern studio.
