Maddy Rosenberg
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Cobble Hill



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work has been greatly influenced by urban environments. I respond to the architecture of a place as it bears witness to its own history, beyond the time of its construction. Though inorganic, buildings still contain remnants of a human touch and a living memory. Based in Brooklyn, I also gather much of my imagery from my travels. Objects, images, and architectural details of places I have seen are deconstructed and reconfigured in seamlessly assembled compositions that appear within a newly invented context. The juxtaposition of flat planes of saturated color with finely painted details more clearly defines the abstract nature of the paintings, while simultaneously emphasizing the evocativeness of the imagery. The images become more than mere depictions of reality, a hint of what once was, with the shapes of pure color a reminder of the identity of the painted surface. I have been dealing with the ideas of multi-panel paintings for a number of years. The artist’s books naturally mimic this sequential aspect, while moving beyond the illusion of three-dimensional space to the actuality of pushing flat planes into a real and seemingly livable space. The new three-layered printed accordion books sit on the ground, dividing the space into twisting “streets.” I envision these multi-dimensional pieces as integral to the process of creating installations of imagined spaces, worlds that offer a reality with a twist.
