Artist Statement

Madelyn McArthur is a multimedia artist exploring the relationship of the mind, body, and surrounding world. McArthur primarily creates as a painter, working with oils, watercolors, and naturally foraged pigments. Her art involves a process and material-based approach, incorporating the use of handmade paints and surfaces crafted from natural and found materials. Her use of dynamic forms and organic shapes serve as visual representations of the intertwinement of all elements of ecology, including those that occur with and without our influence. These visuals of her art invite the viewer to take a closer look at the world around them, while also investigating the metaphysical and unknown. Her work investigates concepts of transformation, interconnectedness, and community.
