'Ghat'

Harry Gordon

1996 - stone: Vermont marble

Font Size: AAA

Harry Gordon is known for his monumental wood and stone sculptures. His sensitivity to these natural mediums is evident in the way they are developed into gentle giants, enhancing and animating the landscape in which they are placed rather than overwhelming their environment. Based on figurative elements, no matter how abstracted in the final work, his sculptures demonstrate an understanding of the human form and how to simplify it while retaining its integrity. The sculptures’ textured surfaces display the artist’s understanding of the innate properties of his materials; he stays within the parameters of their inherent qualities. Rather than intimidate by their massive size, Gordon’s works provide a comfortable atmosphere for and affinity with the viewer.
