Madison Tyrell is a contemporary visual artist from Vancouver, BC. She graduated from Queens University with a BFAH in 2017. Following her studies, she attended a residency in Berlin, shortly after exhibiting her work in a group show, "Temporary Identities" at Galerie 102, Berlin. Now back in Vancouver, Madison is working on a new series that focuses on creating interactions and exploration of space throughout a tableau of local settings. Her work is influenced by nature, the research of new areas and how she finds herself existentially interacting with it all.

I am searching how to represent space and the human's place in it. This simple idea can be deconstructed to the fabric of nature. Space is not always seen, however, our existence is suspended in all parts of it. My goal is to act as the primary viewer as I paint, creating interactions and exploration of space using a variety of imagery and techniques. I am trying to find the line where not a lot is said, but just enough is to take the imagination somewhere. I am using landscapes and juxtaposing line to create and suggest a new occupation of space. This idea is more metaphysical. I have is less interest in the concrete and more intrigue for the exploration of deconstruction and juxtaposition.
My goal is to create an investigation of the mundane, the unseen and the forgotten and its place in our existence. I hope for the viewer to come to his own conclusion, drawing his own story in the mind.
