Dr. Robby Gordon is a Hollywood-based artist best known for his post modern abstract art. Robby paints with oils and acrylics to create a fantasy of color. His paintings and sculptures reflect his feelings at a particular moment - be it joy, sorrow, empathy or pity – and are influenced by the ageless words of sages. He might contemplate a piece for a long time before commencing.
Robby says: “I am a human. I see everything in an array of abstract colors and this creates the impression which becomes my fantasy in the creation...as my imagination is very vivid, I do not stay in the two dimensional world. I make my exit into the three dimensional world with no distinction between painting and sculpture... I plan my painting in my brain. I paint with my heart. I finish with my hands...I look in order to see. I see in order to focus. I focus in order to dream. I dream in order to create and paint.“
Robby’s works are a mixed media with overlapping layers of paint solidified on a non-adhesive surface, which is peeled off and re-glued to create the three dimensional effect. His works denote a fondness for color and experimentation, using a wide variety of painting styles to reflect his inquisitive nature and his ongoing fascination with different artistic media. His intense combinations of color and kinetic composition are intended to stimulate an emotional reaction. Robby wants the viewer to bring his own associations and emotions to his creations. He considers the viewer’s interpretation as important as his own.
Dr. Robby Gordon has created a clothing line known as “DARE TO WEAR BY ROBBY”. The collection includes hand-painted ties, hats, shirts, jackets, and shoes, amongst various other accessories. Clients who have purchased his apparel have commented that others often remember them because of their uniquely painted garments. Some not only wear the clothing, but hang it on their walls at home as objects of art. Installations of Robby’s clothing displayed as art can be found at the Gallery.
Robby’s house in the Hollywood Hills is his gallery as much as it is his home, and is open for viewing by appointment. It consists of three stories of art covering all walls, including paintings, ceramics and glass. All 15 windows are adorned with hand-painted vertical blinds that operate by remote control, framing a magnificent view of Downtown Los Angeles.
Dr. Gordon’s unique Sculpture Garden features both his art, as well as that of others, drawing a lot of attention from tourists, hikers, and locals who like to photograph it when looking down upon DTLA en route to the Hollywood Reservoir & Hollywood Sign.
Dr. Robby Gordon studied art at the University of California Irvine, Irvine Valley College, and Golden West. He also studied at the University of Bologna and UCLA. He spent his first 21 years in Israel, subsequently moving to Europe, where he studied and became increasingly involved in the art world.
People who visit the Gallery are immediately overwhelmed by an array of emotions, coming away mesmerized by the variety of stimulations.
