Peter Madden continues his exploration into found imagery in all its various forms with a new series of work. Consisting of National Geographic magazines (one of his favourite sources) that have been carefully incised, the artist reveals patterns and intricacies page by page, layer by layer.
Previously, Madden has conjured entire worlds out of these magazines, creating meticulously fabricated sculptures. In contrast, these new works descend back into themselves and identifiable imagery is consumed into vortex-like abstractions.
Peter Madden is represented by Michael Lett, Auckland.
