Emily Maddigan presents small and large-scale work inarguably mighty in spirit; these figures startle with their uncanny juxtapositions of beach trash, found wood scraps and all manner of detritus. She seeks out misbegotten taxidermy via Craigslist and yard sales and revitalizes them with colored beads, sequins and pins. These creatures now bear a blinged-out armor: a result of their enchantment, and redemption. Maddigan is a dynamic artist who embraces multiple projects and various materials at once. Her studio practice involves re-appropriating, embellishing and becoming absorbed by both the minute details, and overall tone of her work. She is not concerned or intimidated by the size or duration of any project, and continues to surprise the viewer with each new turn.
