New and recent bird inspired work by Madeleine Stamer. Showing at Bob Boutique May 2 to June 18 2009.
Freelance artist Madeleine Stamer's contemporary illustration and works on paper comprise of gentle yet slightly surreal imagery that delivers an edgy punch. Her metaphoric style echoes imagery found in Mexican folklore such as the Day of the Dead. In the eighties she was involved in the emerging Melbourne underground graffiti and street art scene which she notes as having a huge influence on her art. Her distinctive free-hand drawing features rich decorative line, beautiful flowing patterns and quirky characters reminiscent of her childhood hero Miffy.
