Maud Madsen’s ‘Daisy Chain’: An Intimate Exploration of the Female Body and the Sanitization of Memory

0

n her latest series of grand-scale paintings, artist Maud Madsen dives deeper into our emotional ties to particular moments and locales, as well as the purification of memory. Her representations of the female form shed light on often difficult to broach subjects, paving the way for a richer, more unfiltered truth.

The artwork forming Daisy Chain situates Madsen’s subjects in a range of settings—often echoing places from her own childhood—but with an enduring emphasis on the figure. Trapped in the transitional period between childhood and adulthood, the characters in Madsen’s art confront adolescent insecurities, which include the artist’s heightened awareness of her own youthful body. Madsen presents her subjects from unconventional angles, such as crouched on the ground or seen from beneath, to accentuate the human form and its flaws on the canvas.
