Grady Gordon is originally from santa fe, nm. His art is deeply influenced by various mythologies from across the world. In each new series he finds a particular myth to re-appropriate into a new version, and of course creates the images solely in black and white. Grady utilizes the most crude mark-making instruments to bring about the characters that inhabit the invisible plane.
He works entirely by removing thick black ink from a plexiglass surface. The monotype print is a study of impermanence.
Unlike other forms of printmaking the monotype offers only one copy. The original image on the plate is then given back to the ether, back into the fabric.
CO-founder of the NEOTROGLOCISM movement- sophisticated mark-making, crude objectivity.
