MADELINE WALKER, b. 1991, Cincinnati, OH, USA. (She/Her).
Madeline Walker is a Visual Artist working at the intersection of Sculpture and Painting. Recent features of her artwork include Home Is Where The Art Is by Molly & Friends, Corona Care + by Field Projects , and Socially Distant But Still United by Femme Art Review. Past residencies and fellowships include Vermont Studio Center, Buffalo Creek Art Center, the Socially Distant Art Residency, and a 3 year Art/STEM MFA Fellowship at Utah State University. She has also worked as an Educator and Studio Technician at several different universities including SUNY Oneonta, Hartwick College, and UC Clermont.
Visualization of the otherwise unseen is a foundational element of her studio practice, from the health of an individual to an entire ecosystem. Psychological space, sensory perception, and cultural stigmatization are central to the subject matter she explores throughout her work. Personal fixations, obsessions, memories, and intuitions, ultimately manifest in a material form that is simultaneously experimental, systematic, and meditative. Her visual language, both digital and physical, is one of repetitive patterns, contrasting textures, vibrant pastels, and a subtle subversion of self-identified, cultural artifacts and readymades.
