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.
