Peter Madden’s exhibition ‘Closer Stills and The Veil of Want’

WHEN : 03 June at 6pm – 02 July
WHERE : Ryan Renshaw Gallery

New Zealand based artist, Peter Madden’s sculptural installations begin life as flat imagery, which he carefully refashions into spiralling three-dimensional objects.Gleaning images from books, magazines and encyclopaedias – National Geographic magazines are a favourite – Madden slices out the illustrations, then reassembles them in fantastical constructions.The denuded books are kept – pages intact in their spines, rustling with empty spaces – for possible future works.
