Artists Lindsay Madden

 

Lindsay Madden explores, through painting, objects and photographs, the theme of childhood and growing up. 'Observing my own children constantly changing and recording their individual journeys increased my awareness of the transience of childhood. While these photographic records act as a springboard for my work, I want to suggest more than a frozen moment: questioning the events before the moment; the possibilities and potential beyond it; and the bitter sweet experience of parents watching their children grow.latest body of work continues to focus on our experiences of school, with the notion of continual measurement (physical, mental, academic) against peers and siblings.

Children's body language is universal and timeless and has become the main focus of my work. Extracting the figure from the photographic image and placing it in a more ambiguous context allows the viewer to probe their own memory archives and apply their own narratives. Lindsay's work includes vintage rulers and blackboards, long associated with school, providing a perfect context for the figure, allowing the viewer to probe their personal, and individual memory archives and to apply their own narratives.

Lindsay graduated from Sunderland University in 2013 with a first class honours degree in Fine Art and has since exhibited in the National Open Art Competition at Somerset House and the Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall Galleries. Currently represented by several galleries nationally, Lindsay has had work exhibited in Hong Kong, New York, Stockholm and Melbourne.

'Objects associated with childhood communicate a longing to hold onto the past. The combination of chalk and paint acknowledge the ephemeral nature of youth.' Lindsay Madden.
