Dignity The Subjectivity Of Color (Free & Open To Public) says
The Art Brothers at ZuCot Gallery present,

Dignity- Subjectivity of Color, an examination of societal perceptions of dignity as it relates to race, gender, class and the enduring impact on the contemporary American psyche. A solo exhibition featuring artist, Tamara Natalie Madden who captures the visceral potency of the black experience through portraits soaked in an active use of saturated colors, layered with didactic tonality.

Madden shares her perspectives on the perceptions of color (skin) & adornments (jewelry/crowns) and how they have been used to shape the understanding of self-worth, atonement and/or survival. Layered with dimensionality, Madden's work lures viewers into introspection, while juxtaposing the realities of history’s definition and subjugation of people of African descent.

A well established mid-career artist and Atlanta resident, Tamara Natalie Madden, brings her riveting visual narratives and personal journey back home with her first Atlanta show at ZuCot. The elaborate portraits of complex ornamentation note influences by early European master painter, Gustav Klimt in his “gold phase,” yet transcend societal glamour into allegories to empower everyday people of the African Diaspora. Her work is not about egoism; it is about empowerment of the spirit and recognition of the beauty within. The golden headpieces worn by all of the subjects in her paintings represent mystical crowns, halos, armor and weaponry for the spiritual warriors.

Selected as one of MSNBC's The Grio 'Top 40 Artists to Watch', Tamara Natalie Madden brings her riveting visual Narratives and personal journey to ZuCot for her first solo exhibit in Atlanta!

Also, exhibiting new works by ZuCot Artists.
