Madeleine Phillips

Madeleine is from Salisbury and attended Foundation at Bournemouth and Poole College.

She was in the New Media studio for Year 2 and Sculpture in Year 3, working across media with an emphasis on drawing, with some textiles in narrative, psychological explorations, playful and dark.

I use drawing, painting (both traditional and digital), sculpture, video, textiles and collage. As well as doing this, I combine these mediums in an experimental way. My main ideas stem from drawing as it is a way of expressing my ideas in a raw form; this process enables me to self-reflect on experiences and emotional states such as anxiety, dissociation, isolation.  I am drawn to the use of figures as my main method of articulating myself. I also use symbolism, self-portraiture, atmosphere and textures to explore these themes.
