Three Multi-Media Paintings by Madeline Simms
Paintings by Madeline Simms: Growth, Reach, and Sustaining Collapse
Madeline Simms is a poet, painter, and person of art from LaGrange, IL, currently living in Galesburg, IL. Her work has been featured in Catch, Quiver, Folio, and Cellar Door magazines.
These three paintings show the most exciting turn yet in Madeline's visual work. As the paint and material seem to reach off the canvas, they become topographies, landscapes of color and emotion. Drawing from and collapsing floral, figural, and domestic subjects, each painting seems to be complete with all the furnishings. However, no scene is static in Madeline's work. Whether by depth or texture, these paintings have a movement and a growth cycle within them.
