Guerrieri Center Art Space Presents Works by Madison Stanton May 2-June 2
Born in Royal Oak, MI, Stanton lived in Birmingham, MI, before coming to Maryland in the early 2000s. She began painting at age 16 and has continued to create art regularly since earning her B.F.A. from SU last December.
“The act of painting is an outlet for me; there is a hunger and a drive in me to do it. I can put into my art what I can’t describe in words. I find that in my process, the less planning involved, the better the outcome. I prefer a direct application with no filter, and I do not plan for very long before starting; however, I always have a color palette in mind.
“Color is a very important factor in my work, and music is essential to my process. I’m essentially bringing to life what I feel or have felt at one time through the people I portray. For me, art happens twice: first in the act of creating the work itself and again in the moment it impacts the viewer. It’s a never-ending cycle; a powerful process I take pride in.”
The Art Space is located in the Guerrieri Center’s second-floor concourse. Admission is free and the public is invited.
