Maggie Madden

'Untitled drawing'
Irish Architectural Archive, Merrion Square

Amongst the Eileen Grey models situated in the foyer Irish Architectural Archive, sits a sculptural piece by Maggie Madden. The vibrant multi-coloured wire construction almost shimmers jewel-like in its location. The three-dimensional drawing is painstakingly built up by the artist, with lines of wire reminiscent of architectural blueprints for a building. This is also hinted at by the linear patterns created on the Perspex upon which the piece sits. The innate delicateness of the piece is in contrast with the sturdiness of the surrounding models.
