A Canadian artist, Gordon Milne was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1953. He attended McMaster University where he studied printmaking and sculpture.
Early in his career Milne worked as a printmaker – producing original etchings, woodcuts, linocuts and mixed media drawings. In 1982, at the start of a promising career, a gallery flood ravaged most of Gordon's artwork, leaving little to show from the '70s. Although difficult at the time, it proved to be the event that altered Milne's focus from printmaking to painting – specifically portraiture.
For over a decade Gordon has devoted his attention to the Canadian Sport Heroes Collection – a series of large-scale portraits celebrating the achievements of remarkable Canadian Olympians. Currently comprised of 16 paintings, the Collection was unveiled during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and can be seen in Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. This ongoing collection of portraits has been achieved with the generous support of the Canadian Sport Institute, ARC Energy Trust, BMO Financial and Alberta Culture.
Gordon has also enjoyed a long-term relationship with the Alberta Ballet where he regularly attends classes to draw this group of dedicated dancers. Milne has completed major portraits of several renowned Canadian dancers which mark the inception of a new collection of work called Art & Dance.
In addition to these ongoing projects Gordon has completed a number of private commissions. Individuals or corporations interested in providing funding to expand The Canadian Sport Heroes Collection, The Sport Legacy Collection, Art & Dance, or for private projects or commissions please contact the artist.
