About


Multi-disciplinary artist

 

Ish Gordon (1951) - A painter, curator, designer, photographer and musician, gives us a small glimpse into the world of painting, rich with wonderful images, interesting figures, landscapes and plenty of women and eroticism.

 

The female characters in his creations are painted with grace, love and great sensitivity. An interesting combination of color stains and lines that were evidently created with rapid brush strokes. Some of the figures are delicate, slender, soft and tender, and some are fat, bold and abundant in sexuality.

 

His paintings are bold, sometimes shaking, sometimes pleasurable, but always sweep the viewer in an emotional storm deep into the creations and to reflections about his intentions.

 

Thanks to his unique style, one can discern the artist's moods and cultural contexts that remind the experienced and sensitive viewer of paintings by Egon Shilo, Gustav Klimt, Chagall and Picasso. After many years of traditional painting, the artist has been experimenting  in recent years to develop unique painting techniques in digital art. It is very surprising how, in his digital brush, too, Ish manages to be free of the chains of media and manifest free expression to his imagination and strong instincts.
