Shea Gordon

For over thirty years Gordon's work has pursued variations on a single theme: oppositions and their resolution. Her painting, writings and constructions present the spectator with images bringing together opposing polarities - often the universal poles of birth and death. Gordon's earlier 'Dead Sea' series achieved this integration very dramatically: some of these paintings emphasized the embryo shape of the Dead Sea, others the historical connections of the sea with the birth of religious traditions, and yet others the symbol of evaporation as aspect of environmental death.
