MADELINE GALLUCCI

Chicago, Illinois

Madeline Gallucci is a contemporary painter interested in the intersection of camouflage patterning, digital debris, and how we begin to visually categorize this information.

In her work she explores, dissects, and reinterprets our everyday environment by means of vibrant drawings, whimsical paintings, and digital prints. Gallucci received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2012 and she is currently working towards her MFA at the University of Chicago.

Through her experimental use of color and her process of layered mark making a transformative vocabulary develops that references the inundation of imagery we experience in our daily environments. While the work becomes repetitive and self-referential, Gallucci strives to simultaneously forge a new orientation between the viewer’s experience and her own.

Gallucci has been in exhibitions throughout the United States including Plug Projects and Leedy-Voulkos Art Center in Kansas City, Idio Gallery in Brooklyn, and Skylab Gallery in Columbus, Ohio. She has received several awards including the Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Artist Award and the Hotel Phillips Artist-in-Residence.
