Madelaine Hanman Murphy
Madelaine Hanman Murphy is a socially engaged artist. She currently works within a range of strands, engaging with objects and installations in a socially- engaged practice. She has a penchant for birdboxes, shrines, vanitas and memoria. The material and metaphoric qualities of objects either existing, or of her own making, aim to convey humorous perspectives on futility and frustration. She's interested in the relationship between word and image, the context of the object, and the digital and social remnants of the lifespan of some very short-lived works.
Madelaine and her husband Alistair work on private, school and larger scale public art commissions with an emphasis on socially engagement. Madelaine is a potter by trade, a teacher by profession and an artist by inclination, and also runs her business in the luxury gift and greeting industry.
