Melissa Gordon Talk at Spike Print Studio

Posted by Melissa Gordon (Creator)

If you want to find out more about me and my work, I'm giving a talk at Spike Print Studio in Bristol on Saturday 23 March at 11am. From their website...

Melissa Gordon is an American artist currently based in London at Cubitt. Gordon is currently producing a new body of work through Spike Print Studio for a solo exhibition at Spike Island, summer 2013. The artist will discuss the upcoming show and introduce her practice including the Structure Paintings series; works on canvas based on newspaper layouts from local and international journals that no longer exist. Focusing on the systems through which we receive information, Gordon reduces text and image to pure pattern, leaving only the familiar dot-matrix and grid structures from the printed page. [More widely, she is interested in the intersections between print and painting, image and abstraction, politics and art.]
