LEE MADGWICK

Lee Madgwick artist information:

Born  King’s Lynn, Norfolk, England, 1980.  Graduated in Graphic Design from Norwich University College of the Arts, 2003.

Lee Madgwick paints on canvas using both oils and acrylics. A play of light is used to generate an abundance of seemingly inexplicable moods to contrast with a brooding sky.

“I hope to achieve a sense of drama in my work. Presenting a familiar image, yet placing it in an intimate and moody setting. A narrative is very important, but intentionally never fully explained, I like to leave it for the viewer to come up with their own interpretation”.  – Lee Madgwick, Artist

Lee Madgwick’s mysterious and emotive paintings depict scenes of abandonment, seclusion and dereliction. Both his urban and rural pictures portray parts of the modern British landscape that are often overlooked by many (with occasional sprinklings of the surreal). With an undercurrent of mischievous menace throughout, the subject matter is at once thrown into question. Who inhabits these places? What lives do they lead? What is happening or about to happen?
