Cara Gordon

Artist profile

Cara Gordon was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1961.

She received a Bachelor of Arts from Newcastle University of Fine Art in 1984 and in 1991 moved with her family to southern Spain.
Cara’s inspiration for her choice of subject is inspired by the visual world surrounding her, particularly the strong southern light native to Spain. 
Over the years, animals have been a recurring theme in Cara's work.
The pieces in this latest series of dogs are not so much concerned with depicting a detailed portrait but rather more focus on the energy and movement of the animal, reducing the image to a series of smudges and lines.
