Gordon Hopkins is an American artist, born in 1965. His work finds its strength in his unique technique and use of strong colour. He often sets the outline of everyday objects over layers of colour, building up the material using oil bar and paint. Patterns, forms, fish and garden landscapes are some of the many subjects in his work. He currently lives and works in Brussels.
In my work as an artist, it is very important for me to explore the use of bold colours with many layers, repetition and larger than life format. I like to accentuate and exaggerate a sometimes ordinary object or image. The composition often breaks down into an imaginary world of outlines and colourful backgrounds creating depth and movement.
Gordon exhibits extensively in Belgium, America and also in the UK.
