Self Portrait With Headphones

Kristy Gordon  "Self-Portrait with Headphones"  2006

Canadian artist Kristy Gordon attended the Ontario College of Art and Design but is currently living in New York City where she is studying in the master's degree program at the New York Academy of Art. She has received numerous honors and is the recipient of an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant. Independent curator Rachel Marsden has said of the artist's recent work, "Kristy Gordon embraces self-reflection through intimate portraiture. Situations and identities are frozen through her honest realist yet dream-like surrealist works. A sense of fragility runs through the brush marks, stating a true emotional connectivity with the subject and almost a sense of fear through the process of self-discovery."

Gordon writes a lively blog documenting her creative process which can be seen here:
