Madeleine Strindberg

  • Madeleine Strindberg
  • In her practice Strindberg gives form to visual anarchy, transforming found visual material into something more alive and challenging. Medical illustrations of the brain are transformed into large detailed paintings of menacing beauty. Newspaper images of war are subverted by transforming them into scenes from a comic-book misadventure inhabited by teddy-bear like soldiers in lurid neon glows. She lives and works in London and studied at the Royal College of Art. She was artist in residence at the National Gallery in 1988; won the Abbey Scholarship at the British School, Rome, 1996; won the Jerwood Prize for Painting, 1998; and participated in the Sharjah International Biennale 2003
