Gordon Holden was born in 1985 in suburban USA. After graduating from the University of Vermont, never having studied fine arts, he discovered that the only way to live in a world that strives for perfection is to do just the opposite. His work captures visual and tactile expression through the conflation of pop culture and personally-derived abstract apprehension. His cynical observation produces works that are both whimsical and thought-provoking. He is represented by Paul Loya Gallery and his work has been exhibited at The Institute Library, Art On a Gallery, Homeostasis Lab, and will be part of the forthcoming Recto and Verso at The Howard Art Project, opening February 28th.
