About Red Pencil Elbow Grease
Gordon Moss approaches his art from a place of love and respect for the natural lifecycle of materials. His work uses polished and rustic steel and reclaimed timber to evoke the strength and beauty of the simple connections between materials that are still raw enough to appear that they have been left to the gutter for decades. This complementary nature is how he sees Providence.
“I thought it would be really interesting to try to bring very traditional old craftsmanship and joinery techniques into public art.” – Gordon Moss
Gordon is a craftsman, architect, and owner of Functional Aesthetic Design±Build in Providence specializing in architectural design and construction on residential, commercial, and commissioned work.
