The ideas for Gordon Chandler’s provocative sculptures evolve from immediate and local influences that often seem random and accidental. No wonder then that rusted and misshapen scraps of discarded metal star in many of his works. “Crossword” is composed of lettered squares punctuated by rusted out nail holes. Interrupted by solid black shapes, the work grids the squares, in soft, muted tones that take on the look of fine marble tiles, to look like a worked crossword puzzle. One is tempted to make out words, but the faint to ghostly letters are seemingly randomly arranged o resist interpretation, causing the viewer to embrace the serene assemblage as a whole. Each piece contains a unique serial number specific to the piece.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
