Madison Mullen

In my ongoing exploration of the portrayal of the female body and experience in the art world, I create work that depicts the female experience from multiple angles.

I explore many methods of both capturing and curating the intimate female perspective. My methods and mediums have traversed varying phases. Utilizing printed media, I draw parallels between portrayals of violence against women in media and real-life acts of violence.

Operating under the belief that the romanticism of sex and violence in pop culture desensitizes society to the severity of such issues. Contrasting to the use of media imagery, I create work exempt from the female form, utilizing animals in place of women, operating under the belief that the representation of the female body is inherently sexualized and therefore corrupt.

Additionally, I draw reference to historical portrayals of women and reclaim the narrative and symbolism of the female form whilst exposing the dreadful history of female exploitation.

“Windows/ Komorebi”
A letter on “windows / komorebi”

Think of something said to you, a gesture, moment or your surroundings. At any age, pick your favorites; the defining moments, the joyful ones, the hard-lessons-learned ones.

What you see are moments and memories of mine, windows into my life, into feelings and connections or pauses of free fall in between hugs and conscious thought. Nostalgia is so important, these are the things we lean on when all else is passing.

So hang on to your playful shadows, feelings and memories. Be both immersed and grateful, but note that you have survived all your days so far, so being present is the best medicine to create new windows. Komorebi is the energy of of being present and re-energizing in sun rays, a kind of pause before you move on.

You notice komorebi as sun filtering through trees as you walk, or drive, and that feeling of joy in realizing you get to be here. Thank you.
