Madeleine Rhondeau explores memory as it slips between the real and the remembered with bright, bold paintings inspired by the graphic nature of Kabuki Theater. Steeped in dark imagery and rooted in personal experience, she investigates moments of clarity that illuminate self and identity. Paintings develop in a transformative, process-based dialogue with forms and figures that resolve in their own time.
Originally from Crozet, VA, she graduated from the University of Mary Washington with a B.A. in Studio Art. She currently lives in Charlottesville and is creating her work at McGuffey Art Center as a renting member while running her own business as an independent graphic designer.
