In the confusion and the disrepair there continues to be an undeniable attraction, fuelled by a certainty that impossible things do happen.
Madeleine Mayo (b. 1981, London, Ontario, Canada) holds a BFA in Painting from OCADU (The Ontario College of Art and Design University) and is currently an MFA candidate at Concordia University. Mayo’s practice is situated at the interstices of painting and sculpture which employs figurative and abstract tropes as a vehicle to engage with the formal and effective experience of colour, mimetic representation, and of her own subjective relationship to these objects as manifestations of love and desire.
Mayo currently lives and works in Montreal. She was the recipient of Tom Hopkins Graduate Award in Painting & Drawing and the Dale and Nick Tedeschi Studio Arts Fellowship Graduate Awards. She has also taught both academic and studio courses at Concordia University.
