Gordon Pope . About

Self taught.

Gordon Pope is an emerging artist who uses a range of media and subject matter to explore wide ranging themes and interests. He is drawn to the diverse New Zealand landscape and creates landscape-based works in both realist and abstract styles. He has recently created a number of works on drilled wooden panels, with glitter highlights bringing sparkle to their surfaces. Other works on wood have multi-faceted construction and need to be viewed in the flesh to appreciate their changing surfaces. Other works use magnetic pieces which allow the image to be rearranged according to the viewer's preference. Although Auckland based, Gordon has recently produced several works inspired by an extended visit to the splendid landscapes of Central Otago.
