MADELINE DENARO

BIOGRAPHY

Madeline Denaro's work is a product of her involved creative process. Although abstract in nature, there is an underlying visual order that gradually emerges. Working intuitively, the artist enters a realm of the unknown where there is more of a following than deliberate choice. The artist attests to be forever altering and adjusting the framework of her invisible, creative reality.

There is an openness that is necessary for this direct experience, this self-imposed repetitive process as the artist builds, destroys, erases, paints over. There is a definite chaos through which each work evolves and returns repeatedly to its beginning. With each revival, there are new markings and scars borne out of the previous- Madeline has a relationship to these subtleties and sensitivities, keeping some, hiding others, and retaining the history of all.

"My work is very much about process. I find the image secondary to the art making. Although abstract in nature, there is an underlying visual order that gradually seems to emerge. Working intuitively, I enter a realm of the unknown where there is more of a following than any real choice. I seem to be forever altering and adjusting the framework of some invisible reality. There is an openness that is needed for this direct experience, this self-imposed repetitive process as I build, destroy, erase, paint over. There is a definite chaos through which each work evolves and it seems to return repeatedly to its beginning. But with each revival there are the markings, the scars of the previous. I have a relationship to these subtleties, these sensitivities, keeping some, hiding some; but knowing full well all that has been before." - Denaro
