For its first photography exhibition, Maddox Arts brings together nine artists from all over the world represented through works from the 1940s to today. Eevery of these images display an abstraction, although haven’t undergone digital manipulation, instead as curator Laura Culpan explains "there’s a layer of artistic hand that goes on behind the image being set up and taken which allows for an abstraction."
"Georges Rousse is the main point of inspiration, I’ve been following his work for a long time, and I love finding a piece of work that you make an assumption about and are then proved wrong. He’s like the godfather of single-point perspective, he takes derelict space and literally paints into them, but looking at his works you’d probably assume that there’s been some kind of digital intervention with an abstract shape applied later on. We’re showing two large pieces of his work, and what I want for the exhibition is that the reality is different from your expectation."
