Painting "Turning Point" by Hunter Madsen

"Turning Point"

Almost needless to say, there exists a limit to just how much dissolution and breakdown a place may exhibit before it ceases to be that place, that object, and has become, according to our eyes, something other.  
Take this old, painted wall, which presents itself here as more peel than paint, and more paint than wall.  The paint's mutiny runs rampant, obliterating a wall that now amounts to little more than an hypostatized canvas. Catastrophic beauty.
