There are two important periods in the work of Ted Gordon. His first drawings, prior to 1967, were mostly caricatures or automatic scribbles on scraps of paper. After that date, Ted got involved with a therapeutic workshop; this experience seems to have liberated him from suppressed inner forces, allowing him to create larger drawings, often intense and powerful self-portraits.
