Independent will mark the first showing of Mette Madsen’s paintings in nearly three decades. This solo exhibition by STARS presents the artist’s richly colored, psychologically charged organic forms, inspired equally by the mysteries of nature and the energy of the downtown New York scene. The canvases were created between 1993 and 2003 in her loft on the Bowery, an otherworldly environment filled with her collection of vintage architecture and uncanny natural specimens. Sensual and enigmatic, the paintings lure in the viewer’s gaze, mirroring Madsen’s study of her personal cabinet of curiosities.
