“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'. He illustrated his wife Sheila Gordon's 'Lady Anne's Way' and 'Minitreks in the North Pennines' walking books. His work can be found in numerous private collections, both in this country and abroad.
 
 
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.
