As a printmaker, Michael Gordon‘s longest-lasting romance has always been with ink and paper and now he calls Calabash North Carolina home.
While proclaiming to be a self-taught printmaker and artist during moments in conversation with Mr. Gordon you may discover he studied in London, Paris, and Ottawa Canada.
Hailing from New York Mr. Gordon has been in this fine world of art for decades as an artist and printmaker out of his own print studio and gallery in New York having editioned prints for such artists as Ralph Goings, Richard McLean, and Irwin Hollander.
Irwin Hollander‘s workshop at Chrystie Street in New York City was where such artists as Pierre Alechinsky, Robert Motherwell, Esteban Vicente and Jim Dine went to create original lithographs.
Hollander welcomed Gordon to his workshop and taught him a great deal about printing. Years later collaborating with Hollander on original prints in Gordon‘s studio the roles had been reversed. Those Gordon/Hollander prints were shown at Salon de Vanves outside of Paris in 2002.
Michael likes to work in series. Some of those better known ones are
