Never having formally studied fine arts, Gordon Holden (b. 1985) discovered that the only way to live in a world that strives for perfection is to do just the opposite. His cynical observation produces works that are both whimsical and thought provoking, conflating pop culture with personally derived abstractions. He has exhibited at The Institute Library (New Haven), Art On a Gallery (New York), Homeostasis Lab, and The Howard Art Project (Dorchester, MA). Holden graduated from the University of Vermont.
