The University of La Verne’s West Gallery is proud to present Colorforms, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Megan Madzoeff. Curated by Chuck Feesago, this exhibition is on view in the Abraham Campus Center through April 19, 2013 with a closing reception April 17, 5-7 pm.
With a delightful disregard for structural support and framework, Madoeff’s works are poured pools of irregularly shaped acrylic paint. Her whimsical overlapping forms, which attach directly to the gallery wall, seem to float on an open white space. Both analytical and humorous her explorations of color and process produce complex chromatic interactions. The energetic gestures in Madoeff’s blobs, swatches and drips produce a cartoony hovering sensation like a drifting cloud against a vivid sunset. 

Megan Madzoeff received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA and her Master of Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, CA. She lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
