Brooklyn-based artist, Chad Gordon works with found images to generate idiosyncratic, often absurd combinations. In Gordon’s highly specific compositions of clipped, clustered, and layered fragments, generic price tag stickers, normally associated with the American dollar store, puncture ceremonial tribal masks, interrupt advertisements, and confront iconic contemporary artworks. Sampling elements from the cultural landscape, the multilayered collages collapse recognizable visual iconographies into unexpected idiom and anthropology.
