Kristy Gordon, Recent Work

Hello everyone! 

I hope you're all feeling energized by the crisp fall weather :) 

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the opening reception of my close friend (and incredibly talented artist) Kristy Gordon. Her new paintings are on display at Cube Gallery in Ottawa until October 13th, 2013. If you get a chance to stop by, you will be moved by her beautiful portraits. Her sensitivity to detail and colour, as well as her thoughtful and honest approach to painting are sure to inspire :)

You can visit her website here:

Some words from the artist about the work:

"My paintings investigate the sensation of moving through the unknown,” she says. “They explore the idea of remaining buoyant through  transitional periods and often depict creatures that create their own light.   They embody the idea that one must create one's own light to stay positive through these in-limbo periods.  My paintings explore bipolar  oppositions such as light and dark, soft and hard edges, the beautiful and the  dangerous.”

Here's a sneak preview of the show:
