Biography

Madeleine Bialke’s ethereal landscapes emit a dreamlike quality, blanketed in luminescent colours that appear to glow beyond the canvas upon which they are painted. Focussing on the supple rounded forms of trees and flora, Bialke’s nature is anthropomorphised, tree limbs and softly curved plants appear analogous with the figures and animals littered sparsely amongst the picture plane. Within her practice, Bialke uses colour to generate and indicate emotion. Less interested in the accurate hues of a landscape, her colouring favours a silken palette of iridescent and hazy shades. 

Bialke received her B.F.A in Studio Art from the Plattsburgh State University of New York, Plattsburgh, later undertaking a M.F.A in Painting at the Boston University, Massachusetts. She has exhibited widely, including solo shows at Harper’s Books, New York, Deanna Evans Projects, New York, and Visions West Contemporary, Denver. Bialke was the Artist-in-Residence at North Western Oklahoma State University in 2018, and was awarded the John Walker MFA Painting and Sculpture Award in 2016.

She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
