Artist: Maggie Mills, Paintings
Climate change, sprawl, and the exploitation of natural resources are modern plagues that define our environment. Marks made by adults affect the places where children play, learn and develop into future architects of the environment. The fragmentation of time and space due to technology structures our digital spaces and affects how we perceive our literal spaces. Young people navigate these inherited spaces with little guidance. This narrative is articulated through the use of modern iconography, flattened spaces, gold line work, and decorative motifs. These methods reference the art of the Byzantine, an era similar to our own in its struggle to define morality and its feud between iconoclasts and iconolaters.
This artist is exhibiting in the Solo Series Spring 2017, on view from May 12 – June 23
