This multi-color painting brightens any room and mood. This single statement piece almost five feet high is all you need on a single wall. This painting was donated to a charity auction in 1991 where I was lucky enough to win it as first prize. One of the interesting aspects is how the colors and look seems to change in different light.
Micheal Madigan paintings never go on sale, nor are they found in auctions. This was valued at $11,500 in September 2013, so I am sure the value has increased. If you love it but can't afford this price, make me an offer I can't refuse.

About Micheal Madigan:
Micheal Madigan was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania in 1957 and stayed through the mid-1970’s. Once a strong center for railroading and mining, the region was an early casualty of America’s industrial decline. The decline of the region’s industrial base, rapid social change, and uprooting changes in American social traditions formed Madigan’s early artistic sensibilities.
Formal studies in Fine Art introduced European painters who influenced his early works. Artists from the COBRA movement and the Catalan master Antoni Tapies marked a transition in Madigan’s painting from formal realism to expressionism and a hybrid form of nonobjective mixed media painting. Through the 1980’s and 1990’s his work explored the power of dynamic color and emphasized the evocative potential of nonrepresentational painting.
Projects in Ireland and visits to Southern England, Italy, Spain and the American southwest have influenced the character of Madigan’s painting. Today his work explores the nature of memory, its structure and how it is modeled and changed by time. Although still quantified as abstract in an aesthetic sense, his work often escapes simple qualification.
