Clayton Gorder

U.S. 1936-1987
Nickelodeon V 80.0002

Gorder's pop image of this purveyor of popular music is painted on a shaped canvas-an approach adopted by several artists in the 1960s and 70s, such as Frank Stella and Elizabeth Murray, who desired to release painting from the traditional rectangular format. The nickelodeon was a constant theme in Clayton Gorder's work for several years. "It conjures up in my mind a specific image of loud music and pulsating color-of immediacy, sensuality and kinetic rhythm. The nickelodeon suggests a lively mechanical life-force, positive, and direct, that is the perfect vehicle for my own formal leanings."
