Maddy’s recent works are reflections about motherhood. Like Maddy, the paintings are funny and unapologetically honest, presenting a counter experience to the “beautiful and natural process of having a child.” In her statement she writes, “even though gestation and parenting is a normal and organic experience, some (most) days it felt anything but.”
By using painting (a historically male-dominated trade) as a framework for talking about women’s health, Maddy’s works are quietly subversive – potentially the most powerful form of subversion.
