Chema Madoz at Galería Elvira González

Galería Elvira González, Hermanos Álvarez Quintero, 1

The exhibition which is the photographer Chema Madoz‘s (b.1958, Madrid) first one at the gallery consists of 35 photographs taken between 2012 and 2014.

These new black-and-white images continue the artist’s signature method of creating poetic and surprising visual metaphors out of everyday objects. The exhibition will remain on view until March 14th. Long-established on the international art scene, Madoz was awarded Spain’s National Photography Award in 2000, and he was featured in one of the outstanding shows in the 2014 edition of Les Rencontres d’Arles (France), Europe’s leading international photography festival.

In the 1990’s, Madoz began using everyday objects to create dream-like Surrealistic images, a working methodology he has continued to employ up to the present day. “Madoz lets us know how many different lives might lie in wait within a matchstick or a staircase, if their destinies had not been to serve our need for fire or to conquer gravity,” writes the philosopher and art historian Luis Arenas. “All Madoz’s worlds are improbable, yes, but they are not impossible; they stand before us, demonstrating their reality.”
