Biography from Tree's Place Gallery:

Russell Gordon's still lifes combine precise Realism with a "painterly" luminosity, a stylistic combination familiar from 17th-century Dutch and Flemish works and Italian Mannerism, but embraced by only a few contemporary artists.  Often combining layered symbolism and a subtle sense of humor, Gordon builds each work with carefully applied layers of oil paint and a clear dedication to the craft of painting. Worked directly from life, his paintings often hint at life’s fragility while reveling in its pleasures. 

Born in 1968, Gordon received his undergraduate and graduate art education at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore.  His work has been exhibited in the national open juried shows of the Allied Artists of America (1994 and 1995), the American Artists Professional League (1995), and the Oil Painters of America (1996). In 1996, Russell Gordon won first prize for still lifes in the annual national open juried contest sponsored by The Artist's Magazine (December 1996) He was also the featured cover artist of American Artist Magazine (April 2000) and received a Juror’s Mention award from the Butler Institute of American Art in June 2000.

Biography from Morris & Whiteside Galleries:
Russell Gordon, known for his realistic and luminous still lifes, recieved an undergraduate and graduate degree from the Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore. His style is reminescent of Dutch and Italiam Mannerism, and often combines themes of symbolism and humor. Working directly from life, Gordon's pieces remind the viewer of the Old Masters, combining precise and detailed brushstrokes with a painterly glow.
