Gordon Barnes has presented a conceptually diverse array of drawings, prints, sculptures, installations, photographs, collages, performances, and various combinations of the above in cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, Portland, and Melbourne. He employs a variable and experimental approach to his practice with his time divided between collaborative projects (most notably as an Elder of the group Paintallica) and solo endeavors. In addition to facilitating the development of a broad range of technical skills, this flexible approach helps him stay in a fresh and open space in which his true interests are able to percolate through his work in a natural way.
