About the Artist
Madeleine Clear is a mixed media artist primarily concerned with her personal response to nature and the play of light on landscape. Madeleine's drawings depict warm, magical interpretations of Australia. Her technique of juxtaposing dots of pure and brilliant colour in the pointillist method is so well developed that these works are provided with a depth and iridescence, visually vibrating with their own joie de vivre.
"I am trying to translate into colour what I see and feel. Dealing with scale is always a challenge. I really enjoy the natural elements of line and pattern that I find in any environment I choose to work in. I like to use them to create space, which for me becomes a metaphor for many things - individual freedom, spiritual exaltation and a celebration of existence. Natural light is always for me a metaphor for spiritual light."
