“I believe that my work communicates on several different levels. I am making a statement on nature and the structures it sometimes utilizes to become stronger and thus survive.”
-Wendy Wilkinson-Gordon

Wendy Wilkinson-Gordon has been making sculptures of multiple elements for many years. Her sculpture consists of repeated, organic forms that are covered by a thin skin (paper) to reveal the underlying structure (wire). They hang on the wall, lean up against the wall or are free-standing. They look somehow familiar, as if forms from nature, like seed pods or cocoons, or are reminiscent of ancient utensils, like cups or scoops. Although they are similar in size, color, and form, each element is subtly unique. When presented together, they form a cohesive whole. Wilkinson-Gordon is also very interested in women's work from the past.

Wilkinson-Gordon attended Syracuse University. In 1980, she spent a semester in Florence, Italy and first became interested in three-dimensional form. Upon her return, she spent two years in the sculpture department at Syracuse and then worked at a foundry, Johnson Atelier in Trenton, NJ, for seven years. While there, she learned to weld and metal chase among other things. Wendy has shown her work in numerous galleries and exhibits throughout the Delaware Valley and has won awards from Artsbridge in Lambertville, NJ. She met her husband, sculptor Harry Gordon, at Syracuse in 1981. They have worked many years to create a lifestyle that suits both their personal and creative needs. Wendy is co-owner of Harry H.Gordon Studios and lives in Lambertville, NJ with her husband, Harry, and their two children.
