What He Meant by The Self Was Simply Our Truest Nature, Our Natural State Jeremiah Maddock (Brooklyn, NY)


Jeremiah Maddock is a self-taught artist currently living in New York. He finds it difficult to recall a time in his life when he wasn’t creating. Inspired mostly by people and nature, especially repetition—whether it be musical or visual—Maddock’s art is borne of the desire to make sense out of chaos and turn structure into static process. Each line in the work is a response to the one that preceded it.

Although concepts occasionally reveal themselves to Jeremiah as he works, they’re often very vague. What the viewer may perceive as a recognizable symbol reveals itself to Maddock more like musical punctuation—subtle and lingering nearby with some abstract intention. And while the work as a whole may seem to tell us an elaborate story, none of it is preconceived. Mostly spontaneous and a bit obsessive, the work manifests from the artist’s almost trance-like drawing sessions onto found aged papers and recycled book covers that act as a receiver of the inks he mixes from dead pens and markers.
