Gorgen’s faux-finish paintings question the value of luxury materials. Gorgen inverts the general formula. While faux-finishes are cheap, mass-produced imitations of original and luxury materials, Gorgen’s faux-finish paintings become one-of-a-kind originals depicting commonplace materials.

Nathan Gorgen teaches at Columbus College of Art & Design and works as a fabricator for Science Kinetics. Recent exhibitions include Toledo Area Artists 2014 at the Toledo Museum of Art, The Ohio State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition and Art from the Heartland at the Indianapolis Art Center, IN.

Caudill’s geometric compositions investigate the design of domestic interior spaces. She repurposes household renovation samples, such as flooring, wallpaper, fabric, and laminate, and weaves, sews, and stitches them into two-dimensional pieces. In this body of work, Caudill is inspired by the ornate decorations of 17th and 18th Century Dutch genre paintings.

Jordin Caudill is a sculptor and printmaker working in Columbus, Ohio. Since recieiving her BFA from Columbus College of Art & Design in 2014, she has been a finalist for the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Visual Artist Fellowship award and an intern for both the Columbus Museum of Art and the Ohio Art League.
