In this series, artist Nathan Madrid investigates our culture’s perception of “the other" and "otherness,” ingroups and outgroups, to expose how prescribed labels determine society’s behavior toward a social group because of race, gender, sex, class, and religion. Through his paintings, viewers are actively challenged to situate themselves in relation to those depicted, to embrace the diversity of others or marginalize them.
NATHAN MADRID lives and works in Fort Worth, TX and is a full-time Lecturer at Texas A&M University. He primarily studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco completing his BFA and earning an MFA at TWU.
