PAINT0084 - The attack of the Twin Towers | Pieces of graphic 3-D and collage-art, using various media and paintings that interact with wording, inspired by 9/11 and expressing the frozen astonishment and waves of shock and exploring the question why, painted on purpose in a naïve, childlike manner, while presenting a good display of Gordon’s artistic range.
