Glasgow International 2020

Flo Gordon

Flo Gordon (born 1991, Irvine, Scotland) lives and works in Edinburgh.

With painting comprising the larger proportion of Gordon’s practice, her work is under-pinned by the belief that instinctive humour exists. Evidence of this belief would be the way in which orange is funnier than grey and a scrawly wiggle is funnier than a ruler assisted line.

This belief informs Gordon’s stylistic aproach however the themes of her work are ever changing. Regularly recurring interests include; personalised and abstract thought processes (particularly during times of problem solving), rational pragmatism vs empathy and a heap load of self-reflection.

Solo Shows include: ‘Soft not Fragile’, The Number Shop, Edinburgh, 2017; ‘Profound Thoughts in a Supermarket’, The Project Cafe, Glasgow, 2016.
