Opening at Davis Orton Gallery

Our own Amy Madden from Sweet Olive Jewelry will have an art open at the Davis Orton Gallery this Saturday May 14th in  Hudson, NY.

Inspired by both contemporary feminist artists and practitioners of traditional domestic arts, in this series of small works Amy Madden handprints flora onto paper; makes rubbings of textured surfaces, layers and scrapes beeswax, applies washes of color; overlays patterns and forms to define space and finally adds sewing by hand or machine. The intimate size of these paintings, the use of traditional feminine practices such as embroidery and the use of thread, wax and tacks all add to the delicacy and tactility of each piece.
