Madeline Peckenpaugh Of Ruin, 2015 Oil on canvas 50" x 60"
"A sense of the familiar, of a space you have once been in the past, and are now being placed back into. Different marks document different time, not just when they were painted, but when they were once visited. Each painting is a space made up of quiet collected moments that are often not remembered. These subtracted moments slice yet consolidate within one another, each by holding a very specific language of mark. These different languages form a unified conversation of the events you miss that you pass by everyday, and the sense of familiarity can be heightened by small moments that become more defined and recognizable."
