Women with Palms
Silkscreen, Limited Edition
Robert Gordy is a New Orleans classic. This is a bright, happy, signed silkscreen, in a limited edition. The mat and glass are damaged, so this is for the print only (unless you wish to retain the metal frame and simply replace the glass and mat and save money on framing).
Robert Gordy bio
Balancing a clean, formal graphic approach with creativity, wit and verve, Robert Gordy created a style of painting that is instantly recognizable to anyone even vaguely familiar with his work. Sometimes placed in a category with Keith Haring, he created images that exploited patterns and simplicity of form. He had a wonderful sense of color as well.
Robert Gordy was unusual in his frequent use of markers, pens and ink to create his images – which are so clean that they look to a contemporary eye to be machine or computer-created. He was enraptured with print-making, and produced many limited-edition print series’. Robert Gordy’s works are in museums worldwide, including the Whitney, MoMA, the Smithsonian and other top-tier institutions.
Here is a link to an article about Gordy on the website of the gallery which provided his main representation during his lifetime. He died at only 52, a great loss for New Orleans and the art world in general.
