Madelynn Mae Green

 
 

Madelynn Mae Green (USA, 1993) pulls deeply personal images out of obscurity and reinterprets them. She draws on photographic and video source material, looking at personal history through her own lens and the material language of painting. Memory and domesticity are prominent themes. Green has exhibited nationally and internationally in Brussels. She has been selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018, which will travel to South London Gallery this winter and was part of the 2018 Liverpool Biennial.  Her painting "Summer '97" was recently collected by the UK Government Art Collection.
