Bonnie Gordon

(b. 1941)

Bonnie Gordon is one of the most imaginative artist/photographers in the United States. Her work has consistently challenged categorization because she manipulates imagery and text—literally stretching it—to create works that have ranged from single two-dimensional cyanotype photographic prints to enormous, gallery-filled sculptural installations. Undulating textual threads take seemingly serendipitous journeys across the surface of her works, tracing and changing meaning in a visual manifestation of contemporary theory that addresses how the unconscious functions.
