Seraphin Gallery is thrilled to present Peckenpaugh’s second solo show, entitled INHABIT. The exhibition will open on March 24th and run through May 7th. The public opening will be held on Friday, March 24th from 6pm to 8pm.
The feeling of solely ‘being’ is harnessed within the intuitive drive that flares spirited strokes across these large format canvases. These works not only allude to memory, the remembrance of inhabited space, rooms laid in, shifting perspectives, but also resound to the actuality of having presence-- existing within space. These paintings make us aware of our own bodily engagement, breath, and spatial dimension, while slowing time to a halt; the works envelope the viewer in a single moment of time in constructed planes of sculptural paint. This exhibition comes at the heels of her return from a residency in Nepal, and a renewed investigation of her core concepts.
Madeline Peckenpaugh earned her BFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She has been featured in numerous group exhibitions throughout the Philadelphia area and in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She is the recipient of many honors and awards including The Philadelphia Mayor’s Award. Her works are also part of the permanent collections of the Woodmere Art Museum and 1900 Arch Street.
