ABOUT THE WORK  

For Decor8 Madeline Kidd has created a series of eight watercolours, from which limited edition prints are made. The series reflects upon the interior decoration of each room in a house – eight pictures of eight decors for eight rooms: den, bedroom, children’s room, kitchen, dining room, study, lounge, hall. Flowers for the bedroom, cocktails for the lounge, card games for the den. 

Each work is hand signed and numbered by the artist.
  

MADELINE KIDD BIOGRAPHY

Madeline Kidd’s practice can be defined as the curating of contemporary artworks, representational or abstract, into real and pseudo-domestic settings. The sculptures, paintings, installations and theatrical designs that she produces are conceptualized as ‘set pieces’ or what is known as ‘costume sculpture’. Commonplace and familiar icons of interior decoration, such as paintings, floral arrangements, fruit plates, and abstract sculptures are appropriated and recreated in her work. 

Kidd’s work as an art director for film and theatre has had a direct influence on her art practice. As part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival, she exhibited Washroom, an installation inside the change rooms at the Melbourne Cricket Ground where the rooms were elaborately dressed like a set, creating a fictitious reality of the MCG’s inner sanctum. Recent exhibitions include Playroom with Masato Takasaka at Lismore Regional Gallery; Rose Coloured Glass, The Honeymoon Suite, Melbourne; Painted Gardens, Daine Singer, Melbourne; Into Mystic, Pierre Peeters Gallery, New Zealand; Decor8, Craft Victoria, Melbourne; Lifestyle Concept, Daine Singer, Melbourne; Sculpture Party, C3 Gallery, Melbourne; the Third/fourth Melbourne artist-facilitated biennial at the Margaret Lawrence Gallery and Industrial Estate in Heidelberg West. She has curated several exhibitions including Sushichampagnepaintingsculpture, which situated artwork within a domestic space, another theme of her work.
