Reception: Thursday, November 14 at 4pm

Latela Curatorial is pleased to exhibit local artist Madison Bolls at the Industrious DC office. Madison is an award-winning artist and curator from Washington, DC. She is best known for using of the written word as the basis for layered, multivalent paintings that reveal the subjectivity of both image and text when they’re taken out of their original contexts and layered together.

Inspired by movement, nature, life, and death, she manipulates paint and other found materials around book pages to allow the viewer to experience words in a new way. Words are powerful tools, and using them in visual art often changes their meaning, as well as the meaning of the painting itself. Her paintings take viewers on a journey, where they can make with their own unique interpretations of these works through a palimpsest of image, word, and texture.

This exhibition is curated by Latela Curatorial. All artworks are available for sale. A reception and artist talk will be held at Industrious DC on November 14 at 4pm.

Viewing hours: 

  • Monday – Friday: 8:30am to 5pm

Industrious DC is located at One Thomas Circle.
