These forms - with their hints of turquoise and red - form blossoming cacti and oil rigs, the bones of oxen, an oasis in the imagination, and under the heat of the sun. Here, Gordon captures the sentiment that Iris Nowell expresses: Abstract art is "infinitely more than mere shapes and colours... (It) is an amalgam of energy, power and rhythm, the components that fire this art's ineffable energy." Abandoned in an uninhabited landscape, the artist conveys a distinct sense of fortitude and freedom....

Her life work thus is a gradual scintillating flight towards abstraction." Drawing inspiration from the rawness and splendour of Cubism, Gordon creates a juxtaposition of shapes, colour and energy. Time, Bound in Space is an impulsive burst; the calibres, spindles and ruby jewels of a watch sprung from its case. Gears and pivots, resemble planetary orbs, non-objective and boundless despite the work's title....

Description: HORTENSE MATTICE GORDON, R.C.A.DESIGN FOR WALLPAPER, gouache; signed twice 21 ins x 21 ins; 52.5 cms x 52.5 cms $6,000-8,000Provenance: Private Collection, Hamilton.Exhibited: Exhibition of Architecture and Allied Arts, Ontario Association of Architects, Toronto, date unknown.Literature: Iris Nowell, "Painters Eleven, The Wild Ones of Canadian Art," Vancouver/Toronto, 2010, pages 255 and 260.Note: Upon a visit to Michigan while in her teens, Hortense Gordon discovered artist William Morris, a designer well-represented in the American galleries who had lead the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain decades earlier. Returning to Canada, Gordon's interest in the crafts grew exponentially and she began working in her own studio with a kiln, teaching classes on china painting and pottery making. Relocating back to Hamilton in 1918 for a higher paying teaching position, Gordon created a ceramics course at the Hamilton Technical and Art School. As Iris Nowell points out, Gordon believed in making art that could be enjoyed by all: "She tried to uphold William Morris's commitment to bringing the highest standard of beauty into daily life..." It was her interest in function and art that lead to "Design for Wallpaper", a product of her two passions, painting and craftwork. The work was most likely done before the 1940s when Gordon's interest in Abstract Expressionism had gained momentum and she began to study under Hans Hofmann at his school in Provincetown, Massachusetts. After Gordon's death in 1963, Hans Hofmann stated: "Hortense Gordon was indeed an extraordinary person; always directed toward the future and progress in life and art, and determined to do her very best in her work...and the results and consequences have been remarkable and beautiful."...

Auction Date: Mar 29, 2012

Estimate: $10,000 - $12,000

Description: Hortense Mattice Gordon 1887 - 1961 Canadian oil on canvas Studio Impressions
30 x 22 inches 76.2 x 55.9 centimeters signed twice and dated 1953 and on verso signed twice, titled on the stretcher and alternatively titled Afternoon Impressions on an exhibition label and inscribed "exhibited at Provincetown, 1958" Literature:Stuart MacCuaig, Climbing the Cold White Peaks: A Survey of Artists in and from Hamilton, 1910 - 1950, 1986, page 127 Provenance:Private Collection, Ontario Exhibited:Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto, 1953, catalogue #33
Royal Canadian Academy Exhibition, Montreal, 1954, catalogue #38
Art Gallery of Hamilton, Second Sale of Fine Arts, 1957 Studio Impressions, painted in 1953, is an example of Hortense Gordon's transitional style from figurative to abstract painting. While there are traces of architectural forms still evident, her direction has clearly progressed to the abstract. The style and quality of this work likely influenced her close friend Ray Mead to invite Gordon into the group Painters Eleven, founded later this same year. This work has been exhibited in Hamilton, Montreal and as far afield as Provincetown, USA. Gordon spent many summers in Provincetown and exhibited with the Provincetown Art Association frequently. She became acquainted with the area while studying at the school of Hans Hofmann and later, exhibiting alongside contemporaries like William Ronald. Gordon was one of the first Canadian artists to learn from Hofmann. As Stuart MacCuaig relates, she was captivated by "his theories of positive and negative areas in painting, of suspension and movement, and of push and pull." Her use of shape and colour manifests this tension, generating a visual energy in this important Painters Eleven period work by the artist.

Lot 156: HORTENSE MATTICE GORDON, R.C.A., CUBIST ABSTRACTION, oil on canvas, 38 ins x 20 3/4 ins; 95 cms x 51.9 cms

Auction Date: May 27, 2011

Estimate: $12,000 - $15,000

Description: HORTENSE MATTICE GORDON, R.C.A., CUBIST ABSTRACTION, oil on canvas; signed and dated '49. 38 ins x 20 3/4 ins; 95 cms x 51.9 cms. Provenance: Private Collection, British Columbia. Note: Dynamic, lucid essays, which combine abstraction and cubism, are typical of the work from 1949 (the year of Cubist Abstraction) by the resourceful and important Painters Eleven member Hortense Gordon. However, Cubist Abstraction is of an unusually large size and brightness of colour in her oeuvre of this moment, perhaps because she created this painting as a commission (The verso of the painting features a label, likely created by her niece Reva Colerick, who handled Gordon's estate, which reads "order from Ben's Restaurant, Montreal"). As with much of Gordon's work, the effect is at once lyrical and filled with rhythmic energy. Recognizable objects here maintain their identities when Gordon strips them of their original contexts by detailing their shapes and arranging them by form. Inevitably, suggestive associations emerge. Gordon likely received the Ben's Restaurant commission on one of the many visits she made to Montreal as she developed a warm working relationship with Gallery dealer Agnes Lefort. In November 1953, an important one-person show of Gordon's work travelled to Galerie Agnes Lefort, after it had opened the previous February at the Creative Gallery in New York and had been exhibited widely at public galleries in both the United States and Canada. The opening of the show in Montreal coincided with a meeting of the Royal Canadian Academy and would have served as something of an object lesson for that group of an artist who could use abstraction and related insights to illuminating effect. We would like to thank art historian, Joan Murray, for contributing the foregoing essay....
