    About The Work

    For Madeline Donahue, each artwork begins with a drawing. All of the objects— drawings, paintings and sculptures— are related and work together. At once playful, vulnerable and surreal, Madeline Donahue's work celebrates the postpartum body and depicts not only the joys of motherhood, but also confronting the taboos associated with painting one's life as a mother. By juxtaposing a flattened and abstracted body with visceral feelings of immediacy and tenderness, she creates tensions among closeness and separation, familiarity and estrangement, and calm and chaos.
