Artist Statement

I am interested in memory—specifically memories that we play a pivotal role in but have no recollection of.  As I recently gave birth to my first child, this awareness of what we retain vs. what others recall has become the point in which all of my compositions are structured.

These works serve as visual stories told to my daughter representing a time in her life and development that she won’t remember but that I will always reminiscence.  My consciousness is now full of scattered toys, patterned fabrics, bright colors, and hard-edged shapes.  My daughter is the individual form that fits perfectly into the contour of my life.  She is represented throughout these paintings.  


Madeline Winter is a visual artist from Chicago, Illinois.  She completed her undergraduate degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Bachelors of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Painting.  She completed her Masters of Fine Arts in Painting from Indiana University in 2016.  Winter has shown work in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and throughout Indiana.  She has held residencies in Barcelona and Chicago.
