Kim Gordon is an artist living and working in San Francisco, California. Her art reflects and incorporates her interest in magic, travel, myths, historical events and family heritage. She prefers to paint on wood as the grain, and other natural elements of the material, contribute their own story to the final piece. A soft strength balanced with quiet reflection is found in the faces of her subjects. The worlds she creates echo the present day, historical fact and mythological folklore.
Kim Gordon's art is exhibited, featured and collected nationally and internationally. Gordon's recent exhibitions include the annual Laluzapalooza show, hosted by La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. Her first show (acting as curator), titled, "Hope Beyond" brought together a talented roster of artists to successfully raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy (www.hope-beyond.com). Additionally, Gordon donates her works to charitable causes, including the Sea No Evil Art Show, Pangeaseed and Habitat For Humanity. Gordon’s work has been featured by many publications, including Catapult Magazine, Clutter Magazine, Complex Magazine, Wired Magazine and Hi-Fructose magazine.
