I stopped by the art gallery at 100 Pearl St to see the artwork of Michael Maddadore. The gallery is located within the lobby of 100 Pearl Street next to the Greater Hartford Welcome Center. No doubt some of the people who work in the building, some of which I know must have also seen some of this art, and other too, even if just in passing. I wish there was more traveling art in the corporate world.
Some of the work is marked as sold– bravo. Below is a shot of one of Mike’s pieces. Im glad to see other local artists working and living downtown.
Gallery Hours: Mon-Fri, 8am-7pm.
Personally, I like it. Sure, Im his friend, but this shows a serious dedication and attention to detail. Its not a sprint, this is a marathon. Those lines are precise in their perspective and perfectly straight. Sure, use a ruler and you get the same effect – but this is a relatively large scale work, about 32 or 36″ tall, so a large amount of time went into this. There is a certain style to this that’s working and I like it. It rigidly adhering to rules of perspective in the foreground and center and throws it all those same rules out the window along the edge.
