Paintings and drawings by Jeremiah Maddock, and sculpture by Noah Lang, are currently on view at the Stay Gold Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There is a raw beauty to Maddock’s work. Lyrical forms, many vaguely figurative, emerge from the surface of the paper and canvas with the emotive complexity and ambiguity of a dream. Radio and microwave towers, so ubiquitous they fade into the periphery of our awareness, are brought to our attention by Lang’s humorous, sculptural works. Meticulously carving toothpicks and bamboo skewers, he creates delightfully low-tech miniatures of these high-tech structures.
