Exhibition at Maitland Regional Art Gallery

Madeleine Winch: States of Being

26 September – 23 November 2014

Madeleine Winch: States of Being is a Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery Touring Exhibition.

Winch’s art and the eloquence it extracts can be found in painting after print after painting. She has set herself on becoming a social commentator, drawn from her personal experience and outward observations and in this, she has truly succeeded. This is a survey exhibition comprising paintings and prints (monotypes and collographs) from a period of over 20 years. Her work is inspired by human relationships and personal states of being.

Through her paintings Winch depicts the archetypal woman in domestic settings attempting to balance life as a mother and professional, in this case the artist herself. Her universal characters are drawn from her own experiences and those of her daughters. The paintings are all about the parts of her life that sustain and inspire her, her family and her art.

The amphorae collograph prints depict her family’s time on the Greek island of Paros and the idyllic life they led there. All of these works are printed using the French alla pupai technique.

The interior still-life monotype prints suggest the warmth and comfort of the domestic setting.

Artist talk with Madeleine Winch

Madeleine has recently been a student at Encaustic classes with Daniella Woolf and myself, though I don’t think there are any encaustic works in this exhibition.
