Madeleine Mayo is an artist based in Montreal, Canada, and is the current Open Studio artist-in-residence at Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre. Her work spans painting, sculpture and installation to explore sensuality as a means to connect embodied experience with mythical imagination. To her, objects and paintings are not lifeless things and possess all the potential to behave or misbehave that implies. Mayo’s work asserts the validity of pleasure as a means to better understand unseen forces in her own reality while affirming the body and the physical world. She is interested in the blurred edge between figuration and abstraction as a way to respond to the blurred edge between fantasy and reality.
