Jazz Garden Gallery
Fred Gordon, born in 1993, was exposed to and inspired by the natural world from an early age. To begin with, he primarily used drawing as a way of capturing the essence of his subjects. However, in 2011, he turned to sculpture, as he could better articulate the intricacies of the anatomy, and the movement inherent in the wildlife he observed. Fred uses quick and fluid gestures to capture the vitality of the subject; working first in clay or wax, the piece is then cast in bronze.
