Mixed Media Artworks 

by Madelaine Serena Georgette


From September 25 - October 9, 2009, Madelaine exhibited at Galerie Thuillier, 13 rue de Thorigny 75003, Paris, France. 



"My artwork reflects the world around me and issues of connectedness and relationship between individuals and groups and between people and their environment underlie all my work.  As an active and concerned environmentalist, I am currently working on a series depicting the impacts of Climate Change and Global Warming.   Because this issue is global it reflects every human being's connectedness to the earth and our interconnectedness to each other.  I chose initially to focus on impacts observed and experienced within the Arctic Circle in which I have traveled extensively.  I was profoundly affected by these experiences which reinforced my understanding of the fragility of the planet and it’s incredible beauty. Our every action connects us to each other and to the future or our planet and humanity.


My imagery is essentially an aerial view of the landscape viewed from various heights.  The artworks contain a multiplicity of different perspectives simultaneously in each piece. They map my body’s relationship to the terrain; I am not looking out at it, I’m grounded in it or floating above it.  I move in and out of the space, at once attached and grounded,  at once detached and unrelated.  These artworks thus become metaphors for a state of being not unlike our connection to climate change and global warming - intimately connected to our environment and impacted by it and responsible and eager to assist in reversing a potential planetary disaster and simultaneously detached from the vastness of the problem and our feelings of impotence to effect change."

The University of New Hampshire gave a series of lectures on Democracy starting in the Fall and going into their 2007/2008 year.  They used images from Madelaine's "Going to Vote" series for their posters to advertise their lecture series.  This painting series was done to commemorate South Africa's first all-race election in April 1994 when Nelson Mandela was elected the first black president of South Africa.

The US Center for Disease Control has published training materials for patient and community education in South Africa.  The materials focus on HIV testing and counseling, and how to conduct TB/IV surveillance.  They are developing these materials for use in South Africa's North West province.  If South Africa's National Department of Health is interested in replicating the training in other provinces, the Center for Disease Control would reprint them for other provinces in South Africa.  The materials will include images from Madelaine's series on Life in South Africa.

Madelaine is currently working on a series of artworks to visually portray aspects of Climate Change, specifically global warming. She will concentrate on impacts observed and experienced within the Arctic Circle and in this way be able to narrow this vast and complex topic as well as deal with factual, measured changes and real life experiences. Madelaine went on a two week educational voyage to the Arctic in July 2006 in order to experience it first hand. (See Trip Itinerary)

Madelaine is working in an entirely new way and approaching this project using new techniques and new materials. The imagery will consist of two-dimensional, abstract wall-hangings using raw, unstretched canvas thus freeing her from the restrictions of a rigid surface and a rectangular format. The work will be highly textured and 3-D in some parts and will use a variety of materials, some of which will be natural.  Images of new artworks for this series can be viewed at the Global Warming Exhibition on this website
