Daniel Gordon works in three-dimensional collage to create set pieces that incorporate colourful bits of imagery into a fascinating and visually complex whole. His photographic project Flowers and Shadows (2011) resulted in a portfolio of 12 photographs and a book which explore the visual depth of the flat photographic image by playing with the solidity of cut-outs and the evanescence of shadows, while showing a clear lineage from twentieth century painting and early cubist collage practices. Gordon finds most of his source images online, transforming them as print-outs by enlarging, cropping or folding them around three-dimensional objects.
