“Maggie Cardelús: Spilt Sun” will be the next solo exhibition of the summer at the Quogue Gallery. Featuring 16 photo-paintings by the visiting artist, the exhibition will be on view from August 1 to August 21, 2019; an Artist’s Reception will be held at the gallery at 44 Quogue Street on Saturday, August 3, 2019, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Maggie Cardelús is a Paris based, American/Spanish artist and designer. For her photo-based wall pieces, sculpture, installations, video, and performance pieces, she relies heavily on meticulous handcraft to explore the formal, material, and psycho-socio-mnemonic forces at work within and around photographic images.

In her most recent body of work, “Spilt-Sun,” the artist revisits American landscape photography using crude oil as a painting medium. The technique yields evocative works that suggest a new, more problematic American identity brought about by the burning and spilling of fossil fuels.
