Sue Gordon

Winnipeg artist Sue Gordon's ethereal encaustic work bares the weight of her nostalgia for the prairie horizon. She now seeks to tell stories of longing associated with the increasingly disconnected world of social media set against her dramatic landscapes.

Borrowing from cinematic or photographic mood, Gordon employs purposeful shifts in value and contrast as layers of wax and ink are built up and removed. This body of work can be seen as the visual form of Pathetic Fallacy, John Ruskin's term for the literary device which attributes human emotion to nature, often anthropomorphizing landscape.
