Lee Madgwick’s dystopian worlds are depicted in large oil paintings that host isolated architectures buried in open spaces and lacking in spatial coordinates. Huge buildings represent the ruins of the everyday life, lived consumed among the walls of a concrete universe, which has been a shelter, border and Nation at the same time. The boundaries between indoors and outdoors blur in a saturated, motionless atmosphere. Some building are lost, others are hidden by a nature who regained its own power.
