Alexandre Madureira is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice spans painting, sculpture, installation, and performance. In his paintings, one can get a sense of his artistic ambitions: Alexandre mixes modern pop culture, art history, slogans and film references, skewering our insatiable consumption of both high and low cultural artifacts.
In Alexander Madureira’s acrylic on canvas paintings, we are shown a new assemblage of cultural touchstones combined with an internal logic that suggests a narrative structure. While the interpretation of the work hinges on the reading of each pop culture element as it interacts with the other, the ultimate meaning behind each piece remains wonderfully open ended and elusive.
