Artist Statement

Light is the quintessential component in Steven Gordon's powerfully luminous landscapes of California. They derive their strength from the artist's intimate dialogue with land and light: "At times I feel as if I'm painting with light. It's exciting to take something so completely ephemeral and control and create with it." Since the late 1970's Gordon has been focusing on the visual impact of changing light effects in the Napa Valley wine growing region of California. Continuously exploring and formulating new visions, he has been producing pastels of rare immediacy. Steven Gordon grew up in his native town of Waukegan, Illinois. After having been self-taught in his early years, he decided on formal training in the arts. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a bachelor's degree in art in 1973. For his master's program, he chose Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1976, he received his Master of Fine Arts degree in painting. The following year, Steven Gordon came west to settle in the Napa Valley. He secured a job with a local winery which turned out to be a fruitful relationship since Gordon was given an annual showing of his works at the winery. It also enabled the artist and his wife, Sally Gordon, owner of Yountville's popular Gordon's Cafe & Wine Bar, to travel annually to Europe for a month to study various museum and gallery collections.
