ARTmonday: Photographer Daniel Gordon’s Intensely Colored Still LIfes

Photographs, including the first image below, by Boston-born Daniel Gordon, is part of  the exhibit “Reality Check” at MassArt in Boston, along with Matthew Brandt, the photographer I spotlighted last Monday.  Curated by MassArt’s Lisa Tung, the exhibition, which runs through December 6 in MassArt’s Bakalar & Paine Galleries, features photographs that appear to be digitally altered, but are actually the result of other processes. These works are so colorful they look like acrylic paintings, though they are collage-y type photos. Gordon has a variety of work, and I suspect there will be plenty more to come, as he is young, having graduated from Yale University School of Art in 2005.

His book, Still Lifes, Portraits and Parts ($75) is a limited edition of 1000 and published by Morel Books. There’s a signing this Wednesday, Sept. 25 6-8pm at Dashwood Books, 33 Bond Street, NYC.
