Madeline K. Durso went to the College of Fine Arts at Boston University, majoring in Painting and minoring in Art History, Arts Leadership and Printmaking. She is originally from New Jersey but now based in Boston. Madeline is exploring the life that flowers have in the lines of their petals, the color of their shadows, and the elegant shapes that happen when they are reaching for the sun to grow or wilting, slowly curling out away from their body. One could say the same about the human figure – a beautiful elegance naturally lives in our curves and lines. This essence is what Madeline strives to evoke in her paintings and woodcut prints. She is exploring different ways to convey flowers and figures through abstraction.
Madeline is also always carrying around her camera and ready to snap a scene when she sees it. The city of New York and Boston are full of such beautiful and hidden photography spots that provide much inspiration.
