Young Artists from Around the World 2. Encyclopedia of the African Diaspora: Origins, Experiences and Culture. Marked by a more than usual editorail indifference to the visual arts, entries of erratic quality and less than desirable levels of research or scholarship. Deborah Willis is alotted a bare handful of pages to cover the entirety of African American photography.
The essay on African Diaspora Art was allotted 17 pages to cover a period of 35,000 years and makes a courageous attempt to do so. It is not supported by any entries on individual artists, and many of the artists mentioned are not in the index.The entry is also plagued with inexcusable misspellings of numerous artists' names. The essay on Diaspora photography is also beset by the requirement of inappropriate brevity; the author desperately spends most of the allotted space listing the names of a fairly subjective selection of photographers, some with birth dates, others not. Clyde Taylor packs his 2 1/2 page space allotment to cover Diaspora Film with as many names as possible and, understandably, still can find no room for the Black Audio Film Collective or other such experimental filmmakers, Other essays are depressingly vacuous - the essay on the Black Arts Movement, allotted 2 pages, spends only 31 lines on vague remarks about the movement which the reader is led to think is attributable to events that took place in the Nile Valley thousands of years before. What can you say about a book that devotes more space to rap and hip-hop than to Barbados. Not a book worth consulting? 4to 10.3 x 7.3 in. Group invitational exhibition of drawings by ten artists.

He moved to Montreal in 1973 where he was a visiting professor then faculty member at Concordia University until he retired in 1998.
Gordon was born in Philadelphia in 1936. He received a BFA from Temple University in 1962, an MS from the University of Wisconsin in 1966 and an MFA from University of Wisconsin in 1967. As Gordon began his college career, he planned to study math while playing basketball on scholarship, but eventually changed his major to art before graduation.  Gordon did play basketball professionally for a short time before focusing on his art career. Gordon had numerous positions in academia and institutes including as Assistant Professor at University of California-Berkeley (1969-70), Associate Professor at Mills College in Oakland, CA (1974-75), Associate Professor at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada (1975-98), Visiting Lecturer at the San Francisco Art Institute (1969-70), and positions at University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon Canada (1984), Lakeside Studio, Michigan (1986, 1988) East Carolina University, North Carolina (1989).
Gordon's work is represented in a wide variety of museums and personal collections. He has pieces at the Smithsonian American Art Museum,  the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco,  and the Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University. Gordon himself explains how he creates art and his art life as an artist and an art teacher and how to understand his work and elements that should be considered when watching his works.
Each work of his has juxtaposition and synthesis, which are the modus operandi through which the artist shifts. He also Russell rejects "ism" and the culture of a lot of art making.
He insists that it is essential to develop a capacity to make use of variety; and to understand that one can make use of the value of expression through contradiction or difference. He has been busy with this process for most of his life; it is how he comes to be who he is. He believes that images, like words, are in themselves meaningless and are resurrected in context. And abstract images are redefined in new settings and media, thereby changing their significance and at the same time, reminding us of their meaning in other situations. There is the additional layer of achievement: not of mere social climbing or vain self-satisfaction, but of searching for and attaining human success which serves as evidence of a man's ability to shape his own destiny and achieve his own ends.A strong Nieteschean pulse marks the levels of achievement attained by Gordon, from his initial obtention of a university diploma - to his family's largely uncaring surprise - to his position of program director in a major university art department. Russell Gordon's works point out the paradox of a contemporary painter using a language which is lush in detail, rich in color and prodigal in its use of shapes and forms, in order to speak to a viewing public more familiar with decoding messages from simpler, more ascetic or pared-down visual clues. The baroque figures and signs or Russell Gordon come as a bit of a jolt at a time when less is supposed to be more. Gordon's work takes on a Hegelian dimension when it transposes the results of an exploration of phenomena, namely those thing which present themselves to our consciousness, into a distillation of the absolute, logical, ontological and metaphysical spirit which underlies those phenomena, which in turn determine knowledge of life's essence. Maurice Forget further says that the essence of Gordon's works are the organization of the pictorial space, the invention of shapes and the contrasts, conflicts, allusions, allegories and patterns which emerge from the sometimes disparate elements placed in juxtaposition. There is a celebratory current in Gordon's art.
Gordon's work reflects his own social, intellectual and moral development as a man over that time, with all of his characteristics-most notably being an American black man-he searches for those universal truths which best express his own perspective on humanity. The phenomena absorbed by him-and the resulting metaphors susceptible of being followed in his work-reflect with a certain linearity the events in the artist's own life. In breaking the bonds which tied him to the poorest parts of Philadelphia, to a city which had no understanding, let alone respect, for the activities of the intellect or the beauties of art, and to an American society in its most conservative pre-Kennedy mode, Gordon has sought and achieved in his art a freedom originating with redemption from the cliches of race and social standing, working towards a luminous vision of human life. 1975 - McDowell Fellowship, New Hampshire. 1981 - National Endowment for the Arts grant recipient.

Gordon was born in 1936, in Philadelphia, PA, where he received his early training (BFA) at Temple University with a basketball scholarship; he later took a double Master's Degree (Arts and Fine Arts) at the University of Wisconsin. His initial employment as a fine arts instructor was at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, followed by a teaching engagement at the University of California at Berkeley. In 1973 he first came to Montreal as a visiting professor to Sir George Williams (now Concordia) University, where he joined the faculty the following year and remained for almost 25 years until his retirement in 1998.Throughout his career, Russell Gordon never ceased painting; his works have been widely shown, and can be found in several prominent museum and corporate collections in both the USA and Canada. He was also much sought after as a visiting artist, speaker and jury member, and received bursaries and grants from many sources, including the Carnegie Foundation for his work with inner city youth and the Rockefeller Foundation, for a residency at Bellagio (Italy) in 2006. He will be warmly remembered by many colleagues, students and friends.
His ashes will be buried at Stonington, ME, where he found both peace and inspiration. This item is in the category "Art\Art Prints".
