About the Work
Sharon Madanes’ practice embodies a diversity of technique; her process begins with multi-media collage and utilizes emboldened colors and unique perspective to achieve her final abstracted compositions. Madanes' paintings showcase cropped moments of intimacy, such as the repetition of hands, representing the universal forefront of human greetings and connection. In Interwoven, she captures the interwoven relationships of women sitting together at a communal table. Each figure is connected within the composition through the same intricate weave: braided hair, wool sweaters, and the seating in the foreground, as well as shadowed background echoes the same criss-cross design to further illustrate the interrelated nature of things.
Sharon Madanes has mounted a solo show at Underdonk (Brooklyn) and been included in group shows at Cuevas Tilleard (New York), DC Moore (New York), LeRoy Neiman (New York), Socrates Sculpture Park (New York), Torrance Art Museum (Torrance), Bannerette (Brooklyn), 1708 Gallery (Richmond) and Levontin 7 (Tel Aviv). She has been featured in New American Paintings and BlouinArtInfo. Madanes is also the founder and co-director of 14x48, a non-profit organization that posts public art on vacant New York City billboards. Madanes received her BA from Yale University and her MFA from Hunter College.
