Gordon Hopkins, an American artist, born 1965.
His work finds its strength in his unique technique and use of strong color. He often sets the outline of everyday objects over layers of color, building up the material using Oil bar and paint.
Patterns, forms, fish,gardens to landscapes are some of the the many subjects in his work. Currently living and working in Brussels Belgium and through his travels throughout Europe he gathers new ideas and images for his paintings.
The composition often breaks down into an imaginary world of outlines and colorful backgrounds creating depth and movement.” His representation emphasizes the beauty and perhaps overlooked context of our natural surroundings.
He works primarily with oil bar, and oil paint on linen and board. Gordon's work brings with it a sense of exploration, an interpretation of our surroundings from his point of view, filled with color and a sense of joy.
“It is often just the simple form that can have a great impact and become very important in my work.”
