Keith Maddy has been creating complex and color-sensitive imagery for 25 years. His palette and choice of materials are inspired by a nostalgic embrace of childhood and tempered by his penchant for midcentury modernism.
Well known for his playful mixed media paintings that incorporate vintage materials, Maddy references the natural world through organic and familiar shapes. His energetic collages are poetry and storytelling in motion: layered, intricate, mazelike near-narratives, weaving the past into the present. They are also a continued exploration into collage as a medium of painting with paper.
