PETER MADDEN – ‘From Everywhere Else’

WHEN : 10th April - 11th May
WHERE : Ryan Renshaw Gallery

Peter Madden is an Auckland-based collage artist who creates heavily detailed, surreal microcosms that seem to leap out of their two-dimensional frameworks. Ransacking old issues of National Geographic for his source material, Madden transplants them from their original context into his own fantastical world. Madden’s overwhelming collages burst at the seams with a proliferation of imagery, crammed with symbols of life and death, renewal and decay. His practice has expanded to encompass three-dimensional papercuts and sculptural works reminiscent of his spirited, abundant collages.
