DFW native turned Austinite Becca Gordon has developed an abstract painting style that is uniquely her own.

Raised by her classical musician parents, Becca grasped the concept of expressing emotion through creativity from an early age. Looking at her paintings and sketches it is clear she has a practiced talent for improvisation that looks almost effortless—blending rigid lines with organic shapes and weaving color throughout.

Painting as both a medium and an action has always interested me with its infinite possibilities for construction and application, which results in a visual dialogue between expression and precision on the canvas.

She believes language is not always the best suited medium to communicate thought and this is where her inventive experimentation in painting comes in to explore the boundaries. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, an abstract painting must easily be somewhere around 1,000,000, as the story is left to interpretation and is different to each viewer.

Becca Gordon appeared in our double issue 03 & 04 and contributed a short story to our brand new issue 07! You can see more of her work on her website and Instagram.
