Characterized by rich, sultry hues, Beth Maddox’s paintings take her viewers beyond the subjects she conveys. Her style is both fresh and nostalgic, allowing for a subtle complexity to emerge in each of her paintings. Both the past and the present are evoked in her work; an abstract enhances thought, while a landscape speaks not just of the coming rain but also of the years it has sat waiting to be painted. In a sense, her work is essentially Southern, capturing both the palm-sprinkled marshland and the history of its inhabitants. Her paintings not only reveal objects and lands, but also the culture of those who surround them.
