Most of his subject matter relates to scenes within a few miles of home (especially the Three Peaks area of Ribblesdale) and concentrates on finding a balance between the recall of intense first-hand experience and more painterly concerns of colour and form. He works in oil, acrylics and watercolour, enjoying the varied qualities that each brings to the picture-making process - although oil paint remains his favourite medium. Directly observed drawings in all seasons and weathers are supplemented with photographs; these, together with memory and imagination, are combined in the studio in the making of the finished work.
I try to recapture the feeling of being amongst the hills: experiencing their flickering light, flying cloud shadows, buffeting wind, rainwater on the face . . . while never forgetting that behind these fleeting sensory assaults lies the enduring rock, solid and unyielding under my feet. This collision between the ephemeral and the eternal is a good subject for a painter.’
Frank Gordon exhibits widely, mainly in the north of England; he has featured in various publications including ‘International Artist’, ‘The Artist’, ‘Yorkshire Life’, ‘The Dalesman’, ‘Yorkshire Dales Review’ and 'Yorkshire Post'
