Gordon Sellen | Contemporary Canadian Artist

About me



Artist Statement


It's been said that we are the sum total of our experience and that is evident in my painting. Some of my influences include Van Gogh, Monet, Cezanne and The Group of Seven.  

Gravitating towards a fresh bright and colourful pallet. I maintain a somewhat Post Impressionist approach to painting with a rather eclectic theme of subject matter.



Born in the Yukon Territory, back when car's had wooden wheels. Currently resides in Collingwood Ontario Canada. Painter, Glass Artist, and Retired Award winning Pastry Chef.


Gordon's exploration of art and many of it's mediums has been a lifelong pursuit. Before painting became his focus, Gordon spent many years as a glass blower. He created thousands of pieces of hand blown art glass.


Also a very accomplished stained glass artist, Gordon created windows for many churches, public and private commissions.



Gordon's Painting process can best be described as madly off in all directions. However after painting pretty much nonstop for 10 year's there seem's to be a pattern and his paintings can be grouped into one of many on going series.


Gordon finds inspiration around him everywhere and although Abstract Expressionism is a favorite, he has explored landscapes, figurative work and even Pop Art.
