Nate Cordero Gallery Art

Verge Center for the Arts, Sacramento, CA

Nathan Cordero currently lives and works in Sacramento, California. Although he has never received any formal training as an artist, he possesses the ingenuity and motivation to create his many drawings, etchings, and paintings done on scraps of plywood that he finds in his neighborhood. In a recent show at the University of California, Davis titled Are You Destined to Become Your Mother? Cordero combined his playful pieces along with smaller sculptural works. The title of the show was taken from magazine covers he had been reading—and was also inspired by the recent death of his own mother.

Cordero's method for creating his work begins when he finds the perfect piece of plywood and preps it—the ideas start flowing directly onto his canvas. Cordero appreciates the spontaneity of working in the moment, and he tries to mimic the environment in which he found the wood. In the future he plans to move on to diving into bigger dumpsters and hopefully finding the inspiration for creating larger sculptural works.
