Susan Maddux Art Exhibition
June 22 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Los Angeles artist Susan Maddux uses origami-inspired folding to transform paintings, creating hybrid objects that exist in the space between painting and sculpture.
As a 4th generation hapa-Japanese born and raised in Hawaii with stints on the continent growing up, Maddux has a complex relationship with her heritage. This work explores reconnection with personal history and place through the transformation of material and the ritual of gesture.
Maddux has a degree in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute, and worked professionally as a surface pattern designer for many years. A decade ago, she began creating powerful pieces by gently folding paintings composed of repeating patterns. Forms that bring to mind a kimono or a cape began to appear, bringing together her interests in the figure, spirituality, and textiles.
