Visual Artists & Craft Maker Awards: Trevor Gordon
Over the next few weeks SCAN will be sharing stories of recipients of Visual Artists & Craft Maker Awards (VAMCA), a programme of small grants schemes awarded by Creative Scotland with a range of local authorities across Scotland to support visual artists and craft makers. Dundee based artist Trevor Gordon received £715 from VACMA to develop his sculpture practice. Gordon explores childhood memory in his work and his method of producing sculpture is akin to a stream of consciousness. Describing his current project which the grant will go towards the artist notes, “I want to take inspiration from my family history of pattern weaving, bee-keeping, blacksmithing and railway engineering. Disparate fields that feed into my interest in butting random materials together in my own sculptural work. I am drawn to the notion of ‘clever hands’ and the potential artists who were perhaps stymied by the societal constraints of the time.” Gordon is based at Wasps Studios Dundee.
