18 x 24 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas


SOLD - COMMISSION

I am blessed that my paintings sell very quickly.
However, many collectors are interested in the same
paintings so I offer to re-paint similar to sold paintings
for them. I like to make changes so that each one is an
original for the collector.


This one is larger 18 x 24 than the first 14 x 18 to
work in a specific area for this collector. As you can see
we added Magritte's Eye for the carpet, changed the
colors to blues, more brilliant colors for the bricks,
 made some changes to our lady, added the dove
 in the mirror, lightened up the frames and several
other small changes. However, the original concept
still remains.

If you see paintings of my work that you like that
have already been sold, contact me with your 
specifications and I will design just for you.
You can also add elements that you would like to
have.

Enjoy

Thanks so much for the commissions

Face to Face with Magritte
14 x 18

Seeking to make “everyday objects shriek aloud,” or make the familiar unfamiliar, Belgian artist René Magritte created some of the 20th century’s most extraordinary—and indelible—images.
Throughout these seminal years, Magritte used displacement, transformation, metamorphosis, and the “misnaming” of objects as well as the representation of visions seen in half-waking states, consistently unsettling the balance between nature and artifice, truth and fiction, reality and surreality. His images, then and still today, force us to question the nature of appearances—both in the paintings and in reality itself.

Copenhagen Show March 7 2014 Off the Wall Exhibit by k Madison Moore

40" x 50" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Black and White Oil Painting

Commission

Last August I was requested to do a collaboration with a sculptor
in Copenhagen for an Exhibit in March in Copenhagen.

The painting on the wall was in part designed by her  in addition to
my creative efforts. She wanted the painting placed in a very contemporary room
painted in black and white. The show was in a very industrial scene
with concrete floors. In the photos below she placed the painting behind
the bench that she designed that is also in the wall painting. The painting
as the centerpiece for the show.

Thanks so much Merete Slynborg for the great collaboration and show.







The exhibition The Black Hand focuses on design, interiors and spacious shift in an exhibition context and the trend mechanisms that are at play in this regard. I wish to look at how concepts such as taste, trends and tendencies emerge and position themselves, as well as why some aesthetics are transient, while others remain. Through painting, digital print and sculpture, I want to place different styles and trends in contemporary works of art together with classical art historical references embedded in long cultural traditions and thereby erase the hierarchical boundaries, which usually differs crafts, contemporary art and design.
The painting (no title yet) is for me about artistic collaboration and exchanges between artists as well as it is an interest in the documentation of earlier works and how to work with space two dimensional. The work must also be seen as a historical interest in interior design as well as a study of the personal artistic expression.

Apart from the painting which I consider as the focal point of the exhibition. One of the gallery walls will be painted based on a series of studies of the gallery wall and the history of framing art works. The work takes its inspiration from the painter Giovanni Paolo Panini (1691 -1765) who made an extra spacious dimension of the representation of the exhibition space with painted walls covered with paintings, and Erich Buchholzs (1891-1972) geometric prints, producing his "studio" as a two-dimensional spacious surface. The work becomes a commentary on past thoughts and expressions as well as the movement in looking back. The wall will serve as a work in itself as well as a form of "natural" framing for two framed works.

The two framed works are digital prints. One with the interview The hopes and fear of a whole society are Reflected in the cut of a dress. It is a dialogue between the Danish curator Mette Woller, trend researcher Dr. Maria Mackinney-Valentin and me. Mackinney-Valentin research into consumer behaviour in relation to the status and representation in fashion. The other work is a framed photo of the original photo of the mural at Grimmuesum, Berlin.
The last work in the exhibition Loop Stand is an interpretation of the Danish design company HAY's Loop stand table which is a modern rebirth and development of the classic wooden table stand. The work is in paper clay and glazed red. There will only be produced one version and it will serve as an amputated sculptural comment on the modern classics and our common awareness of good taste as well as the financial aspect of this.

A Note from Merete

A lot of people have been asking about the painting and I think it made the whole show come together. I choose to hang it on the largest wall on it's own so that it would give the feeling of a center piece, when you walk in the room. The room is kind of rough with concrete floor and very industrial, and I think it gives a nice contrast to the painting and the interior motif. Hope you like it as much as I do.


If you have a special project that you would lie me to work on
with you please feel free to email me with your ideas.

Pin-Up Girls

6 x 8  Miniature Painting on Canvas

Pin-ups were artwork depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, a representation of the  New Woman  drawn by Charles Dana Gibson  "Because the New Woman was symbolic of her new ideas about her sex, it the New 
Woman was symbolic of her new ideas aboutsex, it was inevitable that she would also come to symbolize new ideas about sexuality. Unlike the photographed actresses and dancers generations earlier, fantasy gave artists the freedom to draw women in many different ways.
