Notes


About 

 

Gordon Close studied as a sculptor and his work, which is now predominantly paintings and drawings, has originated from the working drawings he made for life size figure compositions; sculptures that were fashioned from traditional materials referring to and making heavy use of Classical imagery. Now the drawings and paintings are of a world that embraces the domestic and everyday as well as history (personal and in the wider sense), folklore and myth. Narratives inhabiting a familiar timeless interior or pastoral landscape often contain references to the earlier sculptures.
