By working in meticulous hyper-realism, Thane Gorek is able to draw the viewer’s attention to often overlooked subjects, inviting them to see the objects anew. By enhancing the smallest details, the ordinary is transformed into the sublime. Gorek considers his process to be a meditative practice. He lives in Loveland, Colorado, with his wife and two children where he teaches classical drawing and painting at the Schissler Academy of Fine Arts. His work can be found in numerous private collections in the United States and abroad. You can find him and his work, along with 100 other artists, at the Celebration of Fine Art in Scottsdale, Arizona, January 12 – March 24, 2019. Contact 480.443.7695 or [email protected] for more information.
