Photo Artist / Printmaker / Video Artist
Anna Madeleine is an emerging artist working in stop-motion animation and mixed media. Her practice explores ways to draw out poetic interpretations of digital technology and scientific phenomena by transforming found materials such as maps, anatomical drawings, and scientific patterns and diagrams.
Anna recently completed her PhD in media arts at UNSW Art and Design (2014) and holds a Bachelor of Arts (Visual) from ANU School of Art (2007). Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions at CHASM Gallery (New York), Mils Gallery, 107 Projects, Paper Plane Gallery (Sydney), Canberra Contemporary Art Space, M16 Artspace, ANCA Gallery (Canberra) and Brunswick Street Gallery (Melbourne). She has been the recipient of grants and prizes including the NAVA NSW Artist Grant and the Qantas Foundation Art Award, and she has been selected to participate in residency programs including Insight Radical (with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Free Radical Chemistry and Biotechnology, University of Melbourne), Sydney Artspace, Splendid Arts Lab, Kala Arts Institute (Berkeley) and CTRLab (Montreal).
