Inside 'Kindling' by Xia Gordon
Gordon's exploration of reds and blues is enthralling and poignant without need for narrative.
Brooklyn-based Xia Gordon has quietly created a small stable of warm and worthwhile comics with her latest 'Kindling' representing a non-narrative journey. Nameless bodies navigate the unnavigable tear-drop stained pages of 'Kindling' where red, blue and negative space collide harmoniously. Red and blue often represent two shades who cannot inhabit the same space without causing friction but Gordon's work brings the two combatants to peace, allowing them to work together to create a minimal but beautiful world. I think you'll like this place.
