Reuben Gordon


Reuben Gordon delves into color and the formal qualities of abstraction to create cityscapes and figurative scenes, often set in New York City’s Lower East Side, where he was born and raised, as well as Brooklyn and California. Meaning and emotion are born out of his attention to color and form. Both natural and human beauty are important to his cityscapes. His figures often depict the fun-loving people in his life, through whom he explores humor and its symbiotic melancholy.
