For over twenty years the urban environment has provided a vehicle for Matthew Madson's studies of color, composition, and mood. He painted New York City and Chicago cityscapes for about a decade, but more recently he has turned his attention to home: the hard-scrabble areas of Northeast Minneapolis.
“Impressive formal certitude.” – Doug Hanson, Minneapolis Star Tribune
“A wise painter.” – Chris Roberts, Minnesota Public Radio.
“Sorta cock-eyed.” – Mike Lynch, Artist
His work is in numerous private collections across the country, in addition to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota, and the Minneapolis Public Library. He has been in his studio at the Northrup King Building in NE Minneapolis for the past 10 years.
