Madeleine Wood: Dream On

Madrona Gallery, Victoria, BC - Sep 8 – 22

by Robin Laurance

Realist painter Madeleine Wood often creates images of great intimacy, whether of the natural world or of human beings tenderly interacting with one another. In her newest work, she overlaps landscape elements such as fl owers and foliage with reclining fi gures to create dreamlike or surreal scenarios. She also juxtaposes snapshot-like images that isolate fi gurative details and tangled bedsheets, so that memory, fantasy and sensuality intertwine.
