Ken Madore’s narrative ink drawings are adopted from stories based on a relationship with his family history.  His work explores the demons that haunt one’s life, from intimate and often dark memories.  There is a focus on the relationship between man and nature, drawing worlds where the forest can be a place for regeneration and strength, while examining the spiritual disconnectedness that occurs when this relationship is weakened.  His imagery is rich with mystic symbolism and references to biblical lore and pop culture iconography, creating allegories for something mythological, entire narratives that blur the line between fantasy and reality.  Ken received a BFA from Syracuse University.  He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York where he has participated in a variety of group exhibitions and is currently enrolled in the AIM program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
