GORDON CHANDLER

Gordon Chandler has been living and working in Carrollton, Georgia for over thirty years. Originally from Massachusetts, Chandler moved south after receiving his BFA in Sculpture from Syracuse University. He started W&P Builders in 1976, a construction company that manufactured welded steel woodstoves, and began equipping the studio that he still occupies today.
While Chandler was originally recognized for his functional pieces, he has since expanded his repertoire to include more sculptural work, such as kimonos fashioned from steel drums, and even some larger than life figurative works. Much of his work is inspired by traditional Southern collectibles; trophy deer heads, quilts and toys. 
The astounding diversity of his pieces, largely constructed from welded steel, demonstrates Chandler’s expansive knowledge of his materials and the possibilities they present.
He is currently represented by Ann Nathan Gallery in Chicago, IL; Leslie Ferrin Gallery in Lenox, MA; Rymer Gallery in Nashville, TN; the Gallery of Functional Art in Santa Monica, CA; and Twist Gallery in both Portland, OR and Seattle, WA, and Besharat Gallery in Atlanta, GA.
