This essay is kind of the second part of an essay on taste that can be read here:
I haven’t had a favourite contemporary traditional painter until a few weeks ago, when the local newspaper did a piece of him. Who’s “him”? His name’s Edward B. Gordon, a painter stationed here in Berlin, who does daily 5x5 inch paintings of everyday scenes. Really lovely pieces. They are auctioned at his blog: http://edwardbgordon.blogspot.de/. And I just came across the video above and thought why not share it as well.
Well, I hope you will find his work interesting. I would love to buy one of his daily paintings at some point. But before that I’ll make sure to get his artbook once it hits the shelves.
This is exactly the thing to do.
